Harry Kane will join Tottenham’s main training group ahead of the Premier League clash against Wolves as speculation continues over his future, said Nuno Espirito Santo.
Kane reportedly wants to leave for Premier League champions Manchester City and the star forward was absent from Tottenham’s shock 1-0 first-leg loss to Pacos de Ferreira in the Europa Conference League on Thursday.
The England international remained in England to build up his fitness and head coach Nuno confirmed Kane will link up with the main group on Friday ahead of Sunday’s trip to Wolves.
“He trained today. He trained with the group of players that stayed in England,” Nuno told reporters after the Conference League defeat.
“He trained well and he is going to train tomorrow and when we return he will join all the players and work as the group and Harry in it.”

Nuno made 11 changes following last Sunday’s Premier League victory over City, with new signings Cristian Romero, Bryan Gil and Pierluigi Gollini in the line-up.
“I think [Pierluigi Gollini] had a good game,” Nuno said. “He was stable and in the action he had to do he did well. With the goal it was a one vs one situation and it was difficult.
“[Cristian] Romero played a good game, intense and this is what we want from our defenders, to be strong in duels. I think Bryan [Gil] started well, but that’s my responsibility. I think we still have to find the right position for him and give him exact tasks. In this game he changed two times his position and it’s not the best way to go to improve a player.
“We need to be patient with all the players because the Premier League. When a player changes country we need to realise that we need to support him. But honestly I think with the quality and talent that Romero has his adaptation will be very fast.”
