​Alderweireld delighted with long-awaited Tottenham return

Tottenham central defender Toby Aderweireld is delighted to make his long-awaited return from injury for the London club.

Aderweireld has been missing for the past few weeks, but he is now back in contention after getting through the game against Newport County in the FA Cup.

His return comes at the ideal moment, with Spurs heading into a home game against Arsenal at the weekend.

"I feel very good. I'm very pleased to get 90 minutes," he said.

"Of course, I'm happy with the win and to go into the next round. Anything can happen in the FA Cup, that's true and Newport gave us a good game. They fought for it but we were in control.

"I worked hard to get to this point, the last weeks have been tough and I'm pleased to get 90 minutes from the manager and to be able to help the team again."
