Harry Kane trained with his Spurs team-mates for the first time this season on Tuesday morning, after completing his period of isolation.

Kane had been staying at Tottenham’s training ground hotel, after coming back to London fresh from his holiday in the Bahamas. 

Kane was then asked to isolate immediately when he arrived, meaning he was unable to join his Spurs team-mates to face Manchester City in their opening game of the Premier League on Sunday.

Kane had undergone solo training on Monday while those involved in the game against Manchester City – which Spurs won 1-0 – enjoyed a break from training.

That out the way, the 28-year-old talisman is now in contention to make his first appearance of the season after being named in Spurs’ squad for their Europa Conference League play-off game in Portugal on Thursday.

Kane was expected to report to Spurs’ training ground on August 2 following his post-Euro 2020 holiday, but instead showed up five days later, denying that he had refused to pitch up and insisting his late return was actually “planned”.

Kane told Spurs towards the end of last season that he wants a transfer, in a bid to compete more consistently for top honours. Speculation had risen even further with him not being named in the squad against City. 

However, Daniel Levy reaffirmed that he does not intend to sell Kane, who has three years remaining on his contract. 

Spurs’ opponents last Sunday, Manchester City, had a £100m offer for Kane turned down earlier this summer, and manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed he does want to sign the striker with reports of them returning with an improved £120m offer. 

The UEFA rules state that if Kane plays for Spurs in Thursday’s Europa League game, he will still be eligible to play for any team in the Champions League from the group stage onwards this season.
