Harry Kane delivered a message on Twitter expressing that he will be working hard to get fit as soon as possible after it was confirmed he had damaged ligaments in his ankle.

The 23-year-old left the pitch after 87 minutes during Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Sunderland with an injury.

The striker went for scan results on Monday to reveal the extent of his injury, which came back to show that he had suffered ligament damage and avoided a broken bone.

Kane took to his personal Twitter account  vowing to come back as soon as possible, while cheering on the side during his recovery.

“Injuries are never nice but part of the game – working hard to get fit as soon as possible! Will be cheering on the lads while I recover,” posted the striker on social media.

Kane broke through the Spurs academy following loan spells with Leyton Orient, Milwall, Norwich and Leicester.

He topped the Premier League goal scoring charts last season with 25 goals in the competition.

Kane started in all six of Spurs’ matches in the new campaign scoring two goals and is considered the star man of their attack.

However, Mauricio Pochettino did bring Vincent Janssen into the squad in the summer and the £17million signing will now see it as his chance to step up to the challenge of leading the line.

In other Tottenham team news, Pochettino has claimed the hamstring injuries suffered by Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele in the same game was a “coincidence”.
