TOTTENHAM ace Lucas Moura accidentally let slip that Harry Kane could be available to face Ajax in the Champions League semi-final second leg next week.
The England international – currently recovering from an ankle injury – had seemed set to miss the rest of the season, but he could return well ahead of schedule.
Kane, 25, was seen stretching his ankle without his protective boot over the weekend as he was snapped feeding the ducks with daughter Ivy.
But it was still believed that the semi-finals would come too soon for the ex-Leicester loanee, with the striker only having a slim chance of being available for the final should Spurs progress.
The North London side are also without South Korean international Heung-min Son for tonight’s clash against Ajax due to suspension.
Speaking in the pre-match press conference, Moura commented the club were looking forward to welcoming him back for the trip to Holland next Wednesday, while also providing an update on Kane.
The 26-year-old said: “To have him in the second game and we hope Harry Kane, as well, recovers quick.”
Boss Mauricio Pochettino then looked to downplay Moura’s revelation, as he commented: “He (Kane) is doing well, he started to run a little bit inside.
