The Premier League clubs have agreed on Wednesday morning to resume contact training, while the competition is set to restart on June 17, according to Telegraph.

The games were suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, which caused a long-term break in play. It could see some Tottenham key players come back to the game after injury.

Harry Kane

Spurs talisman picked up a hamstring injury in the clash against Southampton in January. There were concerns over his return to the game for the club as well as for Euro 2020.

However, after a successful recovery, the striker has joined his side for the recent team training.

Moussa Sissoko

Sissoko had to undergo a surgery at the start of the year due to the knee injury he picked at Southampton.

He is already fit and ready to play when the league resumes.

Son Heung-min

After recovering from his fractured arm, Son returned to South Korea in order to complete his military service.

Now he is back to full fitness and can join the squad in case of competition restart.

Steven Bergwijn

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho had fears over the January signings’ presence at the rest of the season due to the ankle injury he picked up at Burnley.

However, he is likely to return to the game after stepping up the full recovery process.

Mourinho, speaking about the players’ fitness: told Sky Sports: “I cannot say in this moment they are ready to play because one thing is to recover from an injury, and another is to be ready to play football.

In Harry’s case, I think for about five months he hasn’t played, but all of them are not injured any more. They are training, and training is what it is at the moment, training has a lot of limitations.

We cannot compete, we cannot do one versus one, we have to keep a certain distance, we cannot compete.

Harry Kane, Son, Bergwijn, [Moussa] Sissoko, all of them are fine. I think with a couple of weeks of normal training, when the authorities tell us we can train normally, I think in a couple of weeks, the boys will be ready to play. Of course, not in the maximum of their potential, I think nobody can do that in this moment.

For us, of course, it is a great feeling, because we finished the period with that defeat at [RB] Leipzig, where we were really, really in trouble to have 11 players, including attacking players, and in this moment [Erik] Lamela, Son, Dele [Alli], Harry Kane, Bergwijn, everybody is fit now.”
