Tottenham striker Harry Kane says he has fully recovered from a hamstring injury and will be “ready to go” whenever Premier League resumes.
Tottenham Hotspur striker and England captain Harry Kane hasn’t played since New Year’s day match against Southampton after rupturing a tendon on his left hamstring, which he underwent surgery.
The Premier League was halted in March because of the coronavirus pandemic and despite players having been able to return to individual sessions at clubs training grounds, the earliest top-flight matches appear likely to resume in June.

“I’m pretty much as good as I can be,” Kane told Sky Sports News.
“I was at a good stage before the lockdown. I was pretty much doing everything except from training with the team.”
“Since the lockdown’s happened, I’ve continued doing sessions online with the team, a bit of specific work where I do my own stuff for the hamstring and things like that, but pretty much doing everything else the boys are doing.”
“Then obviously the last week or so we’ve been able to go in and do one-on-one training with one member of the staff on the pitch. It’s been nice to get out and start touching a ball again.”
“Whenever the season does continue, whether it’s next month, or two months, three months, I should be ready to go from the first game.”
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Alli Dele was a victim of a robbery in the early hours of Wednesday morning and Kane confirmed he had checked on him.

Alli said that it had been a “horrible experience” after being held at knifepoint, while Tottenham said they were offering “support” to the England player.
“I text him the day after it happened just to see how he was,” Kane said.
“As normal I think he was a bit in shock and a bit angry about the situation but thankfully no one has hurt, no family was hurt, during the process, which is the main thing really.”
“I think he’s Okay, a little bit shaken up, but I guess he’s getting on with it.”
Kane was speaking to Sky Sports News on Thursday after announcing that he will sponsor the shirts of Leyton Orient next season in a deal designed to support both charities and the League Two side during the coronavirus pandemic.
Kane played for the O’s on loan in 2011 and has donated the shirts sponsorship to three causes.
