ENGLAND captain Harry Kane says players are awaiting safety guidance from the Premier League before making their minds up about a possible return to competitive action next month.

Oliver Dowden, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport said government was “opening the door” for a restart after chairing Thursday’s meeting with top-flight chief executives, as well as representatives from the EFL and Football Association.

The Premier League is working towards a mooted start date of June 12 but there are plenty of details to be thrashed out before an agreement is reached, with clubs and individual players all likely to have their own take on events.

Tottenham striker Kane is willing to take the next step, moving from individual training to small group sessions, but suggested more information was needed prior to any formal resumption of the season.

“I don’t think anyone knows the right answer at the moment. I think the majority of players are looking forward to playing again as soon as possible but we know we want it to be as safe as possible too,” he told Good Morning Britain,

“From what I have heard - obviously I haven’t seen too much of my team-mates - at the moment everyone is OK.

“We want to see how the Premier League gives us a plan and what that looks like. I guess we just go from there.

“Me personally, I am happy to start training in small groups if that is allowed and just trying to get back to some normality as soon as possible.

“I guess everyone is different and has their own personal view.”
