Harry Kane says a break in Spain has been hugely beneficial to Tottenham following a gruelling run of games over the last two months.

Spurs have played 12 times since the start of December and there is no let-up as they face three matches in eight days, starting with Saturday's FA Cup fourth round tie at Colchester.

"It has been great to get away and recharge the batteries, a bit of sunshine on your back can only help," Kane, who has scored 13 times in the league this season, told the club's website.

"Obviously we've had a lot of games recently, but being together has been great and it will only help us going forward.

"Everyone is fighting for the same thing at the moment and fighting for places in the team. It's such a great spirit that we've got here and coming away all together has been brilliant. It shows what kind of team we are and what kind of team we want to be.

"Obviously getting away from everything back home in terms of the routine has been good. It will help me and other players who have played a lot of minutes this season as well."

Kane, who has started every Premier League match this season, added: "We have another busy period now so when we can have times like this, it's important and beneficial."
