Mauricio Pochettino has said Tottenham striker Harry Kane will not be ready for next Wednesday's Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund, but revealed the striker could return ahead of schedule against Burnley.
Kane has been missing since injuring ankle ligaments against Manchester United in January and was initially expected to be out until March at the earliest.
However, the England captain is already back in training and reports had suggested Kane could be available for the first leg of the Champions League last-16 tie against Dortmund at Wembley.
Pochettino stressed that contest will still come too soon for Kane, though added there is a possibility he will return for the Premier League clash with Burnley on February 23.
"He's doing well, fantastic," the Spurs boss told a news conference.
"He's doing well, he's nearly ready to play but we need to be realistic too and in between all the areas to take the best decision.
"I think he's so close to coming back. Not for Sunday [against Leicester City] or Wednesday [against Borussia Dortmund], but we will see after."
