PREMIER - The reason why Harry Kane didn't show up to Spurs training
Nuno Espírito Santo has admitted he is yet to speak to Harry Kane as it emerged that the striker, who is desperate to quit Tottenham and join Manchester City, had prolonged his unauthorised leave of absence, spending another day out of the UK.
Kane angered the Spurs hierarchy when he failed to report for his first day of pre-season work on Monday and it came to light that he was on a family holiday. The 28-year was in the Bahamas before moving on to Florida and he was still there on Wednesday.
The England captain, according to The Guardian, intends to report to Spurs’ training ground over the weekend for a Covid test but he will not now be able to work with his teammates until the early part of next week, at best. Both the Bahamas and the United States are on England’s amber list, which necessitates at least five full days of quarantine once back in the country. If the test is negative, Kane could return to training with Tottenham, Manchester city permitting.
