LONDON, Jan 9 (Reuters) - Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane will undergo surgery on his hamstring and is expected to be out of action until April, the Premier League club said on Thursday.
Kane, who has netted 27 goals for Spurs and England this season, suffered the injury during Tottenham’s 1-0 Premier League defeat at Southampton on New Year’s Day.
“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,” Spurs said in a statement.
“The decision to undergo surgery is not expected to impact the time frame that the England captain will be sidelined, with the expectation that he will return to training in April.” (Reporting by Hardik Vyas in Bengaluru, editing by Ed Osmond)
