On-loan striker Harry Kane is eager to follow up his return to competitive action by being involved in Chris Hughton’s Canaries first team.

The 19-year-old Tottenham forward broke a metatarsal during City’s League Cup win over Doncaster in September and has since been with his parent club recovering – until last week, when Kane returned to training at Colney. His rehabilitation stepped up a notch on Monday afternoon, as he played more than an hour for City’s Under-21s in their 3-1 win over West Ham – scoring twice and winning a penalty.

Now the England Under-19 international, who was signed by Chris Hughton for a season-long loan on August’s transfer deadline, is eyeing a Premier League role as City look to deal with a 15-day festive period of five games.

“It feels good; obviously the main thing is to be back playing and the foot is no problem so it’s just about getting minutes, as much time as I can, and then pushing into the first team. That’s the aim,” said Kane.

“I went back to Spurs and had a good 10 weeks rehab there and I’m back here back training now and I’m just trying to get as fit as I can to try to get into the team.

“I felt good out there and I’ve had a good week’s training. A couple more weeks and I like to try and push on as much as I can. I feel good at the moment. Obviously my muscles are getting back used to it and we will just have to see how long it will be until I am back.”

Kane made his debut as a substitute in the goalless home draw with West Ham, before last lasting 50 minutes of the Carrow Road clash with Rovers. And while the striker has yet to show what he has got, with Norwich’s current unbeaten form he has also returned to a club in rude health.

“They are on fire and it’s great for the club,” Kane told the club’s website. “The lads are doing great and it’s great to come back into a team doing so well. Training has been good and hopefully we can keep winning and getting get as many points as we can. The boys have always been confident in their ability and now they’re getting wins it’s even better. The lads are up for it, training is sharp and it’s going well.”


  • Be interesting to see how he shapes up. That Chris Wood is scoring for fun at Millwall. On loan from WBA?

  • Reportedly, WBA want £1.5 million for young Chris Wood. Millwall & Brighton in contention (Mackail-Smith replacement?). Worth a punt? Or should we be concerned that the Baggies don`t seem to want him back?

  • I was at the Doncaster match and saw him injure himself, but previous to that he had missed a couple of chances and of course he missed that great chance against West Ham to win the game. He seems to get in great positions but can't finish. Let's hope with a few more minutes on the field he can truly show us what the Spurs fans are raving about.
