Lennon close to Spurs return, Dembele a doubt

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is delighted with the news that Aaron Lennon is close to a return to first team action after the winger returned to training.

Lennon has been out since he injured his foot in the first Premier League game of the season against Crystal Palace and Villa-Boas hopes that Lennon could be available when the Premier League returns after the international break and Spurs travel to Villa Park.

Speaking about his return, Villas-Boas said

“I’m extremely happy. It’s been a long time out for a player of Aaron’s importance and the team is delighted with his return.

“He’s proved year after year how important he is for us and to have him back is a major plus.”

It’s not all good news for Spurs fans, however, as Moussa Dembele was pictured limping out of training while on international duty for Belgium. The midfielder is reported to have suffered an ankle injury and had to be helped from the pitch.

While the severity of the injury has still not been announced, he has been listed as ‘doubtful’ for Belgium’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
