Tottenham Hotspur midfield maestro Mousa Dembele is due to return to the Spurs training ground soon after a spell away in Qatar.
The Belgian international flew out to spend some time with specialists over his most recent ankle injury.
This specialist rehabilitation has now come to a close after two weeks at the facility.
Dembele suffered the injury just after returning from another one, seven minutes into his 250th game for Spurs against Wolves earlier this month.
Fellow Spurs midfielder, and perhaps Dembele’s long-term replacement, Harry Winks also spent a bit of time in Qatar earlier this year to heal his own ankle problem.
The young England man has come back stronger than ever, which may give Mousa some hope.
However, Dembele may not have much time to come back stronger in a Spurs shirt, as his current contract runs out in the summer, when he will likely leave on a free.
Although, his most recent comments have hinted at a stay.
The Standard report he said: “Changing the environment is good for both mental and physical health and encourages you to work hard. I am excited to go back and to show that I am really doing well.
“I think we have all the ingredients to have a positive future. We train hard, we have a new stadium opening soon, we have very good players, and we play very positive football. I like what Tottenham is doing by building a stable environment and infrastructure around football and our players.”
