Tottenham striker Harry Kane is on course to be fit when the Premier League resumes.
The England captain has been out with a hamstring injury suffered on New Year’s Day, but the enforced break due to the coronavirus has worked in his favour.
He is upping his rehabilitation and should be fit by the time the season can restart.
“I’m not too far away, I’d normally hope to be back with the team in two or three weeks’ time,” Kane told the club’s official website.
“”I’m at a good stage, pretty much doing everything, now it’s about building up my fitness. So from my personal point of view, I’m in a good place.”
It was announced last week that English professional football had been put on hold until April 30 at the earliest.
It is understood the April 3 date had already been pencilled in as one of the league’s regular shareholders’ meetings, but will be used as the latest of the competition’s emergency gatherings to discuss contingencies following the Covid-19 outbreak.
Last week the Football Association board said it had agreed an indefinite extension to the 2019-20 season, which under its regulations should have been completed by June 1 at the latest.
UEFA has taken the decision to postpone the men’s and women’s Champions League finals and the Europa League final due to the ongoing health crisis in Europe.
It is the second postponement UEFA has had to confirm within the last week after Euro 2020 was put back 12 months.
