Harry Kane ‘ruled out until May’ – reports
Harry Kane’s ankle injury could rule the Tottenham forward out of action until May, according to numerous reports.
The Spurs and England striker suffered the problem in Sunday’s 4-1 win at Bournemouth and could not be scanned on Monday due to swelling on his injured right leg.
Spurs hoped to get the injury evaluated on Tuesday, but were still not in a position to reveal the full results, meaning their anxious wait goes on until Wednesday.

And the Mirror are among several media sources reporting that Tottenham fear Kane will be ruled out until May at the earliest.
"In a major blow for club and country, Kane’s anticipated lay-off would see him ruled out until the end of April and have just a handful of games left at the end of the season to try to regain fitness ahead of England’s World Cup campaign in Russia."
With the World Cup just three months away, national coach Gareth Southgate will also be eager to find out how long Kane could be sidelined for.
Both Tottenham and England will be wary of Kane’s previous history of ankle injuries. He suffered ligament damage twice last season to his right ankle.
Those problems were of differing severity, however, with the first one keeping him out of 10 games, though he was able to return within a month of the second incident.
The latest injury occurred after a collision with Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic in the first half of Spurs’ win at the Vitality Stadium.
The 24-year-old tried to play on, but was forced to come off and left the ground on crutches.
