Harry Kane was initially ruled out until March after suffering ankle ligament damage during the Premier League clash with Manchester United on January 13.

But the Tottenham striker appears to be making a speedy recovery.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has hinted the 25-year-old could feature in the league match against Burnley before the end of the month.

If Kane can return for the fixture with the Clarets on February 23, it means he will also be back in time for crunch clashes Chelsea, Arsenal and the Champions League last-16 return leg against Borussia Dortmund.

Pochettino said: “He's doing well. He's doing fantastic.

“We have to stop him every day, because he wants to be ahead of his recovery.

“He’s very optimistic and his determination to play as soon as possible is unbelievable.

“If you see him, he's nearly ready to play, but we need to be realistic too.

“I think he's so close to come back again, not for Wednesday, but we'll see after."

Kane has scored 20 goals and provided six assists in 31 appearances this term across all competitions.

Meanwhile, Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen believes his side can get the better of Borussia Dortmund over two legs and reach the Champions League’s last eight for the first time since 2011.

"We can beat anyone, we have shown that last year," Vertonghen said.

"Over two games we were the better team against Real Madrid (four points from two group games) who were the eventual winners of the trophy.

"That is why it was a shame we could not do better last year because we felt we should have done better.

"That is why everyone has the feeling we can do it this year."

Facing Dortmund will be followed by a break for Tottenham, who are out of the FA Cup, giving them a 10-day gap before facing Burnley.

And Pochettino confirmed his players will be given time off: “They deserve some days off to spend time with their family and breathe a little bit because the fixture schedule was crazy up until today.

“I saw the other day on TV that from the beginning of December we were the best team in the Premier League.

“That spoke very highly of the squad, the players, and they fully deserve all the credit. We’re doing a fantastic job.”
