There were reports in England this week to suggest that Kane was firmly ahead of schedule in his recovery programme and could make his return against Bournemouth next weekend.

And the 23-year-old looks on track to come backsooner rather than later, with Spurs announcing on Friday that he has resumed work on the training pitch.

Speaking at a news conference ahead of Saturday's Premier League match with Watford, manager Mauricio Pochettino talked up Kane's chances of being invovled.

"I haven't decided yet if Kane will be in the starting XI or on the bench but the good thing is that he's back," said the Argentine, who will assess captain Hugo Lloris (illness) and midfielder Victor Wanyama (back) before the game at White Hart Lane.
