Scott Parker has returned to training at Tottenham.

The midfielder who enjoyed such an outstanding first season at the club has been sidelined since the summer with Achilles trouble.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas told the club's website: "Scott's having his first training sessions and we're now looking to build-up his fitness levels.

"Not only that, it's important for a player who has been out to get a feel for his team-mates again, to stop training individually and get together with the group.

"We'll build-up his fitness and then we can look at the options for him."
