Tottenham star Harry Kane has admitted he cannot wait to make his long-awaited return from injury when the Premier League restarts.

The 26-year-old had torn his hamstring against Southampton in January, but has been able to battle his way back into contention with football having been brought to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And Kane has now revealed he will relish taking to the field six months after his horror setback and subsequent surgery.

The England captain was reduced to watching on from the sideline after suffering the injury in Spurs’ loss on the south coast on New Year’s Day, but has begun training.

Football in England was suspended on March 13 as a result of the global health emergency, and Kane says returning to top-flight action behind closed doors will be an unusual experience – but one he is looking forward to.

He told The Sun: ‘Just the feeling of getting back out on the pitch again, with fans or without fans, will be so challenging — and I just can’t wait to do it.

‘I got injured on January 1, so whenever we start playing again it’s going to be at least six months before I play another game, which is a very long time.’

Kane has been forced to wait four-and-a-half months to return for Tottenham – the longest spell without playing during his career.

The Spurs talisman netted 11 Premier League goals before the lay-off, but the North London club remain seven points behind rivals Chelsea in the race for Champions League qualification. 

Top flight chiefs’ ambitious Project Restart proposals aim to resume the season without supporters present next month, with June 12 or June 19 touted as possible dates for fixtures to return.

As preparations also ramp up across the division for a return to training, Kane recently revealed that his Tottenham team-mates and club stuff underwent Covid-19 tests. All the results came back negative. 

The club’s players have been able to train individually at their Enfield complex since April 28. 

But despite the positive step, Kane has stopped short of fully backing Project Restart – and wants to see the plan beforehand once it is agreed with clubs.

In an exclusive interview with talkSPORT, the ace also revealed how he has been spending time during lockdown.

He said: ‘I’ve been able to spend a bit more time with my family, with my kids, time I wouldn’t normally get during my career.

‘We are normally full-on all year round, so I’ve been trying to take the positives from a bad situation and trying to make the most of what’s going on. The training I’ve been doing on my own has been good.

‘I’ve been able to really train and work on specific things. When we do continue, hopefully I’ll be ready.’
