Tottenham Hotspur have provided an update on the fitness of Victor Wanyama.
The midfielder flew home from the club’s tour of the USA with the fear that he had picked up the same knee injury that sidelined him for four months of last season.
A statement on the official Spurs Twitter account read: “Victor Wanyama is progressing well with gym-based rehabilitation for a knee injury.”
The news relieves fears that the Kenyan international could be set for an extended spell in the treatment room and is now likely to be monitored and not rushed back too early.
Wanyama had a fantastic first season at Spurs following his £11 million switch from Southampton and will be looking to put the disappointment of the last campaign behind him.
