Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino will hold talks with England manager Roy Hodgson to discuss Harry Kane's role within the England set up.

On 19 March, Kane received his first call up to the Three Lions squad for the upcoming European Championship qualifier against Lithuania and a friendly with Italy.

The 21-year-old striker has already made 42 appearances for Spurs this term across four competitions and with a role in England Under-21's European Championships campaign this summer also a possibility, he could feature in close to 60 games before the season is over.

Amid concerns over Kane suffering from burnout, Pochettino is hopeful of a chat with Hodgson while the national team train at Tottenham's facilities during the international break and is optimistic an understanding can be met.

"Always it is positive to speak with him," Pochettino said of the England boss at his pre-match press conference ahead of the match against Leicester City on 21 March.

"I think this is a good opportunity for us that day because they plan to train here. It is a good opportunity to share a moment and chat and speak a little, not only about Harry Kane, but about different aspects of football.

"Always we try to find the best for the player. We need to understand everyone's position but I think we have a very good relationship, we need to give our opinion and after, take the decision together. He respects me and me, I have full respect for him."

Kane's excellent form this season suggests he could come straight into Hodgson's first-team plans for the qualifier at Wembley on 27 March.

With Tottenham still in the running for Champions League qualification and Roberto Soldado out with a knee injury, Kane is likely to remain the focal point of Pochettino's attack in the nine remaining games of the season.
