Dervite delighted with Tottenham comeback

Dorian Dervite is delighted to be kicking off his comeback next week at Tottenham.

The defender has been missing since January and he told the Spurs website: "On Monday I will start a programme of one day training then one day off and hopefully I will soon get better and stronger.

"It is not completely perfect, I will have to continue working in the gym to make my knee stronger and hopefully in a couple of weeks it will be perfect.

"I've had good very good rehab here and I've worked hard so I think I am getting the reward for that," added Dervite, before going on to admit there will be a few nerves when he takes to the training pitches again.

"I am excited but also a little nervous about the first contact work, but the confidence for that will come in time. I am not sure when I will be ready to play, but hopefully it will be soon - we'll see."
