Kane relishing Bergwijn and Gedson link-up

Harry Kane is looking forward to getting acquainted with two new team-mates when the Premier League returns.
The hamstring injury suffered by the striker at Southampton on New Year’s Day ruled him out for a number of weeks, meaning he hasn’t yet had the chance to play alongside January recruits Steven Bergwijn and Gedson Fernandes.
Harry isn’t unfamiliar with Steven, having played against him twice – once in our Champions League group stage win against PSV at Wembley in November, 2018, and then again when England faced the Netherlands in the UEFA Nations League semi-finals last June.
But now that he’s fit again, the front man is relishing the chance to play on the same side as the Dutchman, plus talented Portuguese international Gedson, when Premier League action resumes following the outbreak of coronavirus.
Asked about teaming up with the duo, Harry said: “We’ve only just started training together. I got injured on 1 January, so Gedson and Stevie, I’ve not really seen much of in terms of playing with or getting that connection, although obviously I’ve watched them play.
“I can’t wait to get back out there. It’s been long enough without a game, especially when there are top players who are new to the club and you want to be on the pitch with them. I’m looking forward to it, looking forward to playing with everyone again.
“The squad is looking good. Everyone is fully fit and ready to go and that’s when we’re at our strongest, when we have a full, healthy squad. We’ll work hard from now until the first game and hopefully we’ll finish strongly in the last nine games.”
