Tottenham sweat over Harry Kane's fitness amid reports of lengthy absence

And the north Londoners believe the injury is closer in seriousness to the first time he suffered the setback and missed seven weeks from September 2016, than the last one when he was out for just over three.

Tottenham face an anxious wait to discover the extent of Harry Kane's ankle injury amid reports the England striker could be sidelined for six weeks.

The Football Association's medical department spoke to Spurs on Tuesday and are awaiting updates on Kane, who is suspected to have suffered ankle ligament damage.

As it stands, Kane would miss Spurs' FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea on Saturday, a semi-final if they progress and four league fixtures after the worldwide break - a potential top four decider against Chelsea and further clashes with Stoke, Manchester City and Brighton.

The 24-year-old tried to play on, but was forced to come off and left the ground on crutches.

Mauricio Pochettino's side travel to Swansea for an FA Cup quarter-final on Saturday before...

Gareth Southgate is set to name his squad for this month's global friendly matches against Holland and Italy, but Kane will be absent for both ahead of this summer's showpiece.

With the World Cup in Russian Federation now less than 100 days away, the FA will not want Kane rushed back from his injury by Spurs.

Kane's latest injury occurred after a collision with Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic in the first half of Spurs' win at the Vitality Stadium.

Tottenham are set to have to go without Kane in several upcoming big clashes but would want their top scorer back for their fight for a top-four finish later in the season.
