On loan striker Harry Kane injured his foot while playing for Norwich City and will now face 8 weeks on the sidelines.

On transfer deadline day Tottenham Hotspur loaned out promising young striker Harry Kane. The England U21 international was sent to Norwich City to get some first-team experience at the Premier League level. However, Kane has now suffered a major set-back on the road to securing significant playing time for the Canaries.

During this week's Capital One Cup victory over Doncaster Rovers injured his foot. This afternoon Tottenham Hotspurannounced that Kane had undergone surgery on his fifth metatarsal and was facing around 8 weeks on the sidelines. Foot injuries are always tricky things for footballers (for obvious reasons). Rushing a return could result in an even longer injury layoff down the road.

Norwich Manager Chris Hughton seemed a bit downhearted at the prospect of losing Kane for such a long time. Speaking immediately after the match Hughton said"

"He will be a big loss because he is a young player of fabulous potential. It was a big move for Harry to come here, an exciting move. I feel for him at the moment. It is a real disappointment, especially when he was just up and going. He has settled in very well. We just hope it is a shorter period out rather than a longer one."

Hopefully Kane is careful and takes his rehab seriously and is back on the pitch for Norwich sometime in December. Best of luck with your recovery Harry!
