Harry Kane has been ruled out until early March with an ankle ligament injury, Tottenham Hotspur has confirmed.

The England captain suffered the setback in the closing minutes of Sunday's 1-0 Premier League loss to Manchester United at Wembley.

Kane will miss the first leg of Tottenham's Champions League last-16 tie with Borussia Dortmund and is unlikely to be fit for the return match on March 5, while the derby with Arsenal three days earlier also looks as though it will come too soon.
