​Tottenham striker Harry Kane is set to return from injury in time for Tottenham's game against Bournemouth on April 15, ​the Sun have reported.

Spurs' top scorer was expected to be out until the end of the month with ankle ligament damage, but could make a sooner than expected comeback.

Kane is not considered ready for Saturday's home game against Watford, but has progressed well in his recovery and returned to training.

The news comes as a boost for Spurs, who have made up some ground on Premier League leaders Chelsea after last weekend's results. Tottenham won 2-0 at Burnley, while Chelsea were beaten at home by Crystal Palace, closing the gap at the top to seven points.

Kane is set to return at a key time for Mauricio Pochettino's side, with an FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea later in the month before the North London derby on April 30.

The 23-year-old looked favourite for the golden boot before picking up his injury, having scored 14 goals in his last 13 games. He has since been bypassed by Everton's Romelu Lukaku, but still has 19 league goals to his name.

Spurs have dealt well with the absence of Kane, securing back-to-back wins against Southampton and Burnley.

Pochettino recently told ​Sky Sports that Kane's return is imminent. "He is doing well and he has started working again on the pitch," the Argentine coach said. "We are very positive, he is very positive, but we will see when he is available again."
