Mystery surrounds fitness of Spurs winger Lamela

Mystery surrounds the Tottenham future of Erik Lamela.

The London Evening Standard says Spurs' £30million record signing has been following a programme of rehabilitation to recover from what the club describe as a back problem, but much of his recent time has been spent away from the Hotspur Way training complex in Enfield.

In the opinion of many at Spurs today, Lamela is some way away from being able to compete for a first-team spot. The club also did not reveal where their player had been in recent weeks.

Club sources have privately expressed doubts about whether Lamela will appear again in the first team this season, although there should be a clearer picture when the Argentina international has been assessed again by staff at Tottenham.
