Tottenham's Harry Kane back in full training ahead of schedule - sources

Harry Kane is back in training ahead of Tottenham Hotspur's trip to Burnley on Saturday, sources have told ESPN FC.

The England striker has missed Spurs' last seven matches after suffering an ankle ligament injury at the end of the 1-0 home defeat to Manchester United on Jan. 13.

Kane -- ranked No. 1 among the world's strikers in the ESPN FC 100 -- was initially expected to be sidelined for even longer, with the club initially saying he would return to training in early March. But his recovery has been quicker than expected.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino revealed earlier this month that Kane had a chance of facing Burnley, and sources have told ESPN FC that the 25-year-old trained with the first-team squad on Monday.

After the weekend's trip to Turf Moor, Spurs face two vital London derbies against Chelsea and Arsenal next week, followed by the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie against Borussia Dortmund in Germany on March 5, although they already have a 3-0 aggregate lead.

Meanwhile, Tottenham have announced they will be heading to Asia for their preseason tour this summer.

While the opposition and venues are yet to be revealed, Spurs will play matches in Singapore and Shanghai in July.

South Korea international Son Heung-Min is sure to be a big draw. The 26-year-old is hugely popular in Asia and helped his country to win the Asian Games last summer, earning exemption from military service in the process.
