Harry Kane has handed Tottenham a fitness boost after posting a picture training alongside his team-mates.

Kane is expected to return to action ahead of schedule in Spurs’ Premier League match at Burnley on Saturday.

“Great to be back with my team,” Kane tweeted.

The England captain has been sidelined with an ankle injury he suffered in Tottenham’s defeat against Manchester United on January 13.

Initially, it had been expected that Kane, who has scored 20 times in all competitions for Spurs this season, would not be fit to return until March.

Tottenham have won all four league matches in his absence and stand on the brink of the Champions League quarter-finals after an opening-leg 3-0 victory against Borussia Dortmund last week.

But Kane’s imminent return is timely for the north London club as they fight to stay in contention in the league, and bid to progress in Europe.

Spurs trail Manchester City and Liverpool by five points ahead of this weekend’s fixtures.
