After missing three games Jermain Defoe expects to be fit for Tottenham Hotspur's trip to Sunderland after confirming he will return to training on Monday.

The 23-goal striker is pleased with the speed of his recovery and is planning to resume full training with his team-mates at the start of the week.

"It was nothing major, I just pulled up in training," Defoe told Goals on Sunday.

"When I first did it, I thought it was bad. When I do get little knocks I tend to recover really quickly.

"I was running the next day, which was a good sign, and it's really good.

"I think I will train tomorrow and I'll play next week definitely."
