Harry Kane is said to have returned to Tottenham training on Saturday ahead of his side’s trip to Norwich, giving Antonio Conte’s side a major boost as they aim to wrap up fourth place on the final day of the season .
The England captain emerged as a potential doubt for Sunday’s game when he missed training and pulled out of media engagements on Friday due to feeling unwell.
A stomach bug also affected several members of the Tottenham squad ahead of their 1-0 win over Burnley. Conte tried to play down fears Kane could miss the game at Carrow Road by saying the striker’s condition was “the last of our problems” during his press conference on Friday.

It’s a huge boost for Antonio Conte, who has relied heavily on Kane this season
It looks like he was right not to worry as the 28-year-old trained with his teammates the following day, according to soccer london.
This indicates that Kane is feeling better and should be able to take his place in the starting lineup as usual.
Kane has started each of Spurs’ last 35 Premier League games, underlining how essential he is to Conte’s side.
He has scored 16 top goals this season, including 12 since the start of the year, to put Tottenham in pole position to clinch the final Champions League spot.

Tottenham hold a two-point advantage over rivals Arsenal going into the final day as they prepare to face already-relegated Norwich, while the Gunners take on Everton at the Emirates Stadium.
A draw will most likely be enough for Spurs to finish above Arsenal and seal their place in next season’s Champions League thanks to their superior goal difference.
Still, they could still be capped by Mikel Arteta’s men, which is why Kane’s availability is so important.
