Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon is enjoying career best form this season.

The London Evening Standard says sources speak of Lennon's healthy relationship with manager Andre Villas-Boas. The winger is thought to appreciate the clarity of the head coach's instructions, his honesty and insistence on being always available for individual conversations.

Similarly, Lennon is said to have "come out of himself" and assumed greater responsibility within the dressing room, as befits one of Tottenham's longest-serving players. He signed a new four-year contract nearly five months ago.
