HARRY KANE has missed the start of Tottenham’s pre-season after being forced to self isolate.
The England striker jetted off for the white sandy beaches of Barbados following the club’s final league game on July 26.
The Caribbean island wasn’t deemed a high-risk destination when Kane whisked his family abroad.
But circumstances changed following a rise in coronavirus cases and it was added to the “unsafe” list meaning those returning would need to self isolate for 14 days.
According to the Daily Mail, Kane has been following the government’s advice meaning he still hasn’t joined up with the rest of his team-mates.
Jose Mourinho’s men returned to training this week ahead of the new Premier League campaign on September 12.
Kane, 27, is likely to return to training next week and his absence has not had an affect on Mourinho’s preparations.
The target man battled with a hamstring injury throughout the second half of last season but found form in the final few matches with five goals in three matches.
And he has continued to work on his fitness in the off season with hopes of instantly hitting the ground running at home to Everton.
Spurs have three pre-season fixtures before the Prem campaign starting with Ipswich on Saturday.
Tottenham have returned to pre-season training
According to The Telegraph, the new cases have been recorded at 12 clubs who began preparations for next season last weekend.
Club officials are said to be concerned cases could continue to rise after players were pictured partying on holiday with pals from rival clubs over the past few weeks.
