Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt a significant injury blow for the remainder of the season with star striker Harry Kane having been ruled out until at least April.
The England forward suffered a hamstring injury against Southampton, which has now been revealed as a ruptured tendon.
In a statement, Spurs have confirmed that Kane will undergo surgery to rectify the problem and is set to be out for a considerable amount of time.
“Following ongoing assessment by our medical staff over the past week, we can confirm that Harry Kane will undergo surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring,” the club statement read.
“The striker suffered the injury during our Premier League fixture against Southampton last week and specialists have advised surgery after further review of the injury.
“The decision to undergo surgery is not expected to impact the timeframe that the England captain will be sidelined, with the expectation that he will return to training in April.”
As a consequence of his injury, he is set to miss vital games against Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United, as well as the club’s UEFA Champions League last-16 tie against German outfit RB Leipzig.
Tottenham have not won in the Premier League where Kane has not played since April 2019. The North-Londoners are at 15/4 with Betfair to beat league leaders Liverpool this weekend.
