Jermain Defoe has confirmed that will be resuming training on Monday and expects to be fit for the trip to Sunderland.
Defoe has been absent for Spurs’ last three games with a hamstring injury and had initially been ruled out for a few weeks.
However, the striker is happy with his recovery from the injury and plans to restart full training this week, with one eye on being part of the squad to face Sunderland.
“It was nothing major, I just pulled up in training.
“When I first did it, I thought it was bad. When I do get little knocks I tend to recover really quickly.
“I was running the next day, which was a good sign, and it’s really good.
“I think I will train tomorrow and I’ll play next week definitely.”
