Gareth Southgate will “make an exception” over Harry Kane to give the injured striker more time to prove his fitness ahead of the Uefa Nations League Finals.

Such is the importance of the England captain that he will be named in the 23-man squad to be submitted before the Champions League Final even though he has not played since damaging ankle ligaments in Tottenham Hotspur’s quarter-final against Manchester City on April 9.

Southgate will attend the final in Madrid between Liverpool and Tottenham on June 1 and fly back in time to take training with the England squad at St George’s Park the following day.

Nine players from Southgate’s initial 27-man squad – which includes a recall for Southampton’s Nathan Redmond - for the fixtures the following week against Holland and either hosts Portugal or Switzerland will be involved in Madrid.

Ross Barkley will feature for Chelsea in the Europa League Final while Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi would have been selected by Southgate but for serious injury.

Harry Winks has also been included with hopes that he will recover from a groin operation with Southgate admitting he will have to carefully assess the fitness of a number of players – although he will give Kane added time.

“Where there are one or two others we need to know a lot more about in the next week, he (Kane) is one I will make an exception for in that I will see how it goes in the final week,” Southgate said.
