Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Harry Kane has suffered ligament damage following the FA Cup win over Millwall.

In a series of tweets the club said it wasn’t as severe as previous but gave no indication of how long the England striker will be out.

They said: “INJURY UPDATE: We can confirm that @HKane sustained ligament damage to his right ankle during Sunday’s FA Cup win against Millwall.

“The injury is similar to the one suffered by the forward against Sunderland in Sept last year, however it is not considered to be as severe.

“Harry will continue to be assessed by our medical staff while he undergoes his rehabilitation at our Training Centre.”

That injury against Sunderland kept hin out for seven weeks.

If it is that length this time round, he would be back around the north London derby at White Hart Lane.

But as it doesn’t seem to be as severe, hopes will be high he could be back in time for the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea at Wembley a week earlier.
