Spurs boss Mourinho: Kane, Sissoko and Bergwijn all fit now

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has fully recovered from his hamstring injury.

The striker has been ruled out since sustaining the problem in a clash with Southampton on New Years' Day.

Kane had begun light training again before the season was put on hold due to coronavirus.

And boss Jose Mourinho has now revealed the striker is one of three stars ready to join in full sessions again with their teammates.

"They are recovered from their injuries, so Harry Kane is not injured, Moussa Sissoko is not injured, Steven Bergwijn is not injured, but it is one thing not to be injured, it's another thing to be ready to play football," Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"For them it is many, many, many weeks of injury and when the injuries were almost at an end, we stopped training (because of the coronavirus pandemic).

"I don't know, they don't know, we have to wait for the official and right permission for the players to train again in groups to see if they can come back to a normal competition level.

"So if we play this season, the remaining nine matches, it would be good for everyone of us, it would be good for football, it would be good for the Premier League if players of that quality can play the remaining matches."
