Tottenham forward Harry Kanes season is in jeopardy with Spurs confirming the club captain needs surgery on his injured hamstring and wont return to training until April.

The 26-year-old striker injured his left hamstring in last months 1-1 draw with Southampton in the English Premier League.

Tottenham had been coy on the extent of the injury until providing an update on Thursday.

Following ongoing assessment by our medical staff over the past week, we can confirm that Harry Kane will undergo surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring, the Spurs statement read.

The striker suffered the injury during our Premier League fixture against Southampton last week and specialists have advised surgery after further review of the injury.

The decision to undergo surgery is not expected to impact the timeframe that the England captain will be sidelined, with the expectation that he will return to training in April.

Spurs, who have been linked with FC Barcelonas Nelson Semedo and Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha this transfer window, will be desperate to fill Kanes void.

The England striker has netted 11 goals in the Premier League this season, with midfielder Dele Alli and forward Son Heung-Min next best with six and five strikes respectively.

Spurs host leaders Liverpool at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday in the league.

Tottenham are currently sixth in the league, five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea in the final UEFA Champions League spots.

The club sacked Mauricio Pochettino earlier this campaign, despite reaching last seasons Champions League final, replacing him with Jose Mourinho.
