​Positive news on Tottenham's long term injury victim Alderweireld

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says defender Toby Alderweireld could make his return from a hamstring injury suffered in November against Newport in the FA Cup next Saturday.

Asked whether Alderweireld could be available for the Newport game, Pochettino said: "Maybe, maybe. We are going to have all week for training so we can see if he can arrive in a good condition to play. We are going to assess day-by-day next week.

"Today all is okay with him; maybe tomorrow he can integrate himself in some exercises with the group and a little bit step-by-step to build his fitness to be available again.

"He will do a warm-up with the team, the first exercise and to be integrated gradually with the group and we will see next week if he can improve and then be ready as soon as possible."
