Harry Kane is posted to return to Tottenham training on Friday ahead of Sunday's Premier League opener with Manchester City.

Kane will re-join his Spurs team-mates at the end of this week, providing his day-five PCR test comes back negative.

The 28-year-old has been isolating at Tottenham's Spurs Lodge hotel facility and training alone for the past five days after returning from an extended break in the Bahamas and Florida.

Providing his test comes back negative, it would leave Kane with just two sessions before the season opener against the club who have been so heavily linked with signing him this summer.

Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo had previously said Kane will be available for Sunday's clash, but it remains to be seen how fit the forward is and whether he will start the match against last season's Premier League champions.

Kane and Nuno were reportedly due to hold talks this week for the first time since the latter's appointment, with the former Wolves boss keen to move forward with the striker.

City manager Pep Guardiola revealed their interest in signing Kane last week, but said unless Spurs were willing to negotiate and lower their demands, then a move was finished.

Last week, Kane released a statement denying reports he was refusing to train in an attempt to force through a move to the Etihad.

He posted on social media: "It’s almost 10 years since I made my Spurs debut. For every one of those years, you – the fans – have shown me total love and support.

"That’s why it hurts to read some of the comments this week, questioning my professionalism.

"While I won’t go into the specifics of the situation, I want to clarify that I would never, and have never, refused to train. I will be returning to the club tomorrow, as planned.

"I wouldn’t do anything to jeopardise the relationship with the fans who have given me such unwavering support during my time with the club. This has always been the case as it is today. Harry."
