Harry Kane has injured his ankle ligaments.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed the news on Tuesday as Kane, 23, went down injured late in Spurs’ 1-0 win against Sunderland on Sunday.

Speaking to reporters ahead of Tottenham’s League Cup clash against Gillingham on Wednesday, Pochettino had the following to say on Kane.

“He has injured his ankle ligaments,” Pochettin said. “We will continue to assess him every day but don’t want to put a timeframe on it.”

Media reports suggest that Kane could be out for two months with the type of injury he suffered will severely weaken his ankle.

The Tottenham and England striker scored the game-winning goal for Spurs against Sunderland, and has two in his last two PL games.

Now, though, Spurs will have to adjust to life without Kane and new Dutch international striker Vincent Janssen looks set to take his place in the starting lineup.

Kane has virtually been injury free since he broke through in November 2014 as a first team regular at Tottenham.

If he is out for a few months, it will be a big blow for Pochettino’s side both in the PL and the UEFA Champions League as Kane has scored 51 goals in 88 Premier League games over the past two and a bit seasons.
