  • Spurs news: Spurs handed major boost as Mauricio Pochettino delivers huge Harry Kane fitness update

Tottenham has dealt with an injury-riddled roster over the last month or so, with Heung-Min Son only recently back from worldwide duty and Dele Alli still out with a hamstring problem.

Kane is on course to return ahead of his scheduled March comeback according to Pochettino, but he and Alli will miss Leicester's visit to Wembley. You know him well, we need to stop every day because he wants to be ahead of his recovery.

"He's very optimists and his determination to play as soon as possible is unbelievable".

"He's almost ready to play, but we need to be realistic too. Not for Sunday, not for Wednesday, but we will see after".

Kane (ankle) is progressing well but the earliest he could return is the trip to Burnley on February 23, while Alli (hamstring) is also out.

When asked if he'll be involved for that fixture, Pochettino replied: "Maybe, maybe".

The club are committed to playing at Wembley until March 2, when they host Arsenal in the north London derby, after which they have five Premier League games left in the campaign.

Nevertheless, Pochettino will be eager to get his star striker back on the pitch as soon as possible, although he did rule him out of this weekend's game as well as the Champions League last-16 first leg against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

What They're Saying: Aleksander Ceferin 02/07/2019
Ceferin said both he and Andrea Agnelli, president of the European Club Association (ECA), were united in opposing the initiative. Ceferin took over two and a half years ago after the corruption scandal that toppled his predecessor, Frenchman Michel Platini .

"He will not be available until the end of the season".

Pochettino also denied he and assistant coach Jesus Perez had a secret dinner date with David Beckham and Zinedine Zidane during the week.

"Yes it was very nice", he said.

Tottenham sits third in the Premier League table, a significant achievement to be in that position after grinding out three one-goal league victories despite the riddled roster.

"Only we say hello because we met by coincidence".

"Jesus said "look in the corner, who it is", then I saw these two people with two people more".

"We finished at the same time, he came to say hello and we spent two minutes talking and we split and went home".
