ESPN say we have received a significant boost after Victor Wanyama joined in part of first-team training for the first time since August.
The Kenyan has not played since the opening two games of the season due to a persistent knee problem, however the article says the the tough tackling midfielder joined part of an outdoor training session on Tuesday as he continues his rehabilitation.
It adds that Wednesday against Brighton and the visit to leaders Manchester City on Saturday will come too soon for Wanyama, who has been training alone since last month.
It adds that his return is good news for the club coming into a hectic period with five games remaining this year and three fixtures in five days at the start of January.
It adds how we are already without Toby Alderweireld until at least next month, and the centre-back’s absence has exacerbated that of Wanyama because Eric Dier has been needed in defence.
The article concludes by adding that on Saturday, members of the Tottenham fan club in Machakos, a small town south-west of the Kenyan capital Nairobi, took to the street wearing club shirts bearing images of Wanyama’s face to wish the national team captain well.
They walked behind a car carrying a big sign that read: “Wanyama, get well soon.”
