Tottenham have been hit with a blow as their captain Harry Kane has been ruled out of the season after sustaining an ankle injury against Manchester City in the Champions League.
This will now be the third time Harry Kane has sustained ankle injury in his career as Tottenham went on to win the Champions League quarterfinal first leg match 1-0.
Harry Kane launched himself into a heavy tackle on Fabian Delph and limped off down the tunnel at the Tottenham new stadium.
And according to the latest report on UK Sun, Spurs have confirmed that Harry Kane is likely to be out of the season due to the nature of the ankle injury.
"Following assessment over the past two days, we can confirm that Harry Kane has sustained a significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle following a challenge in our Champions League quarter-final, first leg win against Manchester City.
"Investigations are ongoing and he will continue to be assessed by our medical staff over the coming week.
"We can also confirm that examinations have revealed that Dele Alli fractured his left hand during Tuesday's fixture.
"The England midfielder will now be assessed to determine his availability for this weekend's fixture against Huddersfield Town,'' Manchester City said in a statement according to UK Sun.
