Tottenham fans have reacted excitedly on Twitter to the news that Harry Kane is set to return to training on Monday.
The Spurs striker has been absent since picking up an injury in the victory against Sunderland last month and was expected to be out for up to eight weeks.
Pochettino "hopeful" Harry Kane can re-join the group on the training pitch tomorrow. Alderweireld will have a knee scan. #THFC

England international, Kane has been out of action for almost a month now with an ankle injury but his impending return will come as a huge boost for the team.
Tottenham are unbeaten so far this season and maintained their record of eight games without a loss when they drew 1-1 with West Brom on Saturday.
Dele Alli netted a late equaliser to secure a valuable point in an otherwise disappointing game for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
In Kane’s absence, Heung-min Son has excelled, scoring four league goals in five appearances but last season’s Premier League top goal-scorer will certainly improve the team.
Tottenham have a crucial Champions League tie against Bayer Levekusen this week which Kane will miss out on but fans are hoping he could make a return against Bournemouth this Saturday or against Leicester City before the end of the month.
Here is a selection of some of the best messages on Twitter;
