Tottenham confirm details of Harry Kane's injury and the news is not as bad as first feared
Tottenham has confirmed that striker Harry Kane suffered ankle ligament damage in last Sunday's game against Bournemouth, but have confirmed they expect him to return to training next month.
While Kane will miss this weekend's FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea and the vital Premier League clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on April 1st, reports that he will not play again for Spurs this season and could be a doubt for England's World Cup adventure this summer have been banished in this club statement:

Tottenham will now be hoping that Kane can return for a possible FA Cup semi-final in mid-April and the final games of the league season, as they look to cement their place in the Premier League's top four.
While he will be missed by Spurs in the next few weeks, Mauricio Pochettino's side only play three times between now an April 14th, meaning Kane may not miss too many games if he is out of action for a month.
