Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that Harry Kane will be back in the squad against Watford this weekend.
However the Argentinean boss isn’t sure if the 23-year-old is ready for a place in the starting line-up.
Kane has missed almost a month’s worth of action since injuring his ankle in the FA Cup victory against Millwall.
The injury news could provide a huge boost to Tottenham’s faint hopes of winning a maiden Premier League title.
“I haven’t decided yet if Kane will be in the starting XI or on the bench but the good thing is that he’s back,” said Pochettino, as quoted by injury expert Ben Dinnery on his personal Twitter account.

Spurs had earlier confirmed on their Twitter account that Kane had returned to first team training this week in what has been a swift return from an injury that could have seen him miss out on the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea later this month.
The striker has scored 24 goals in 29 appearances across all competitions this campaign, with five of them coming in his last two league outings before his spell on the sidelines.
Tottenham haven’t suffered without him though, winning all three matches against Southampton, Burnley and Swansea.
Pochettino’s side have kept up the pressure on league leaders Chelsea with five back-to-back wins.
Antonio Conte and his men suffered a surprise defeat to Crystal Palace last week which leaves a seven-point gap between the two London clubs with eight games left to play.
In other Tottenham news, fans have urged Pochettino to bring this 22-year-old into the starting line-up for Watford.
