As we told you yesterday, Spurs are set to welcome back five players this month with some of their injured players expected to feature in their weekend game against Swansea.
Today, Benoit Assou-Ekotto returned to first team training for the first time since he was sidelined with a knee injury over three months ago. He had originally only been expected to be out for around four weeks however the problem was much worse than feared.
Assou-Ekotto tweeted today
“Trainning with the team today !!! I hope as i ll remember the name of every one LOL.”
It is not known if the defender will be included in the squad for Tottenham’s game at the weekend.
Assou-Ekotto has only made three appearances for Spurs so far this season.
