Harry Kane intends to step up his rehabilitation from injury next week and is confident of a swift return for Tottenham.

England striker Kane suffered ligament damage in his left ankle during Spurs’ defeat to Manchester United last month.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been forced to make do without Kane for the club’s last five fixtures in all competitions.

Kane was expected to be ruled out until March but the forward has offered a promising update as he bids to return sooner than initially anticipated.

He told Sky Sports: ‘It’s going well.

‘I went away for some warm weather training and we’re stepping it up, [we will] see next week how we go, start to get the balls out and just see how the ankle reacts.

‘It’s going well so far but we have just got to take our time with it and make sure we get it right.

‘I never put a time on any of my injuries.

‘It is just about how it feels. The ankle feels great at the moment, so as long as the swelling stays away and we can keep progressing that would be great.’

Since Kane suffered his injury, Tottenham have won three consecutive Premier League fixtures but been knocked out of both domestic cup competitions.

‘I have been watching the last couple of games [Watford and Newcastle],’ Kane added. ‘It’s been nerve-wracking watching them but a couple of great wins.

‘Obviously, I want to be there helping my team but you have got to have a positive mindset.

‘I am just trying to stay as positive as possible. Hopefully I will be back as soon as possible.’
