Kane on track to return

Tottenham captain Harry Kane has been out of action for two months, but is making good progress and looks set to be fit to return once football resumes. He told the club’s official website:

“I’m good. From a rehab point of view and personal point of view, I’m doing really well. I’m at a good stage now and just working hard, doing a lot of recovery, a lot of rehab and just waiting to see what happens to the season.”

Kane also said that he would normally hope to be back with the team in a few weeks’ time. “I’m at a good stage, pretty much doing everything, now it’s about building up my fitness. So from my personal point of view, I’m in a good place,” he added.

The news will provide a definite boost for Spurs’ supporters everywhere.

End of the road at Spurs for Vertonghen?

Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen’s time at Tottenham may soon be at an end. His contract expires at the end of the season, and he has admitted he needs to do some serious thinking about where his future lies.

He joined the club in 2012 and may be ready to move on in search of a new challenge after eight years in north London. Napoli are one club reportedly interested in securing his services.

“I’m in a process right now that I have to grab a piece of paper and write down the pros and cons of the options I will have soon,” Vertonghen told De Kleedkamer via Sport Witness.

“I have to start thinking about where I still want to live, what language I want to learn, what culture I still want to live in. And also very importantly: which competitions and prizes I still want to win. I don’t want to regret anything in my career.”

Only 10 players have made more Premier League appearances for the club than Vertonghen has, but he may not be making many more.

Thomas to Tottenham?

It was reported in January that Tottenham held talks with Atletico Madrid in January over the potential transfer of French international midfielder, Thomas Lemar.

No deal took place, but the former Monaco man still looks set to leave the Wanda Metropolitano, having only made nine La Liga starts in 2019/20.

According to Le10 Sport, Lemar would have been up for signing for Spurs, but the club were looking for a loan with an option to buy rather than a straight sale, and the deal fell through.

Now ESPN are reporting that the player’s agent met with representatives from Manchester United.

Will their interest spur Tottenham into action?
