Jermain Defoe is on his way back at Tottenham ahead of schedule.

The Daily Mail says Defoe is on course to make a first-team return before the end of the Champions League group stages.

Defoe, 27, suffered ankle ligament damage in September during England's 3-1 European Championship qualifying win over Switzerland, and was expected to face three months on the sidelines after undergoing surgery.

The prolific forward is making a speedy recovery and hopes to resume training by the end of November.
