The England international has not featured this season after undergoing surgery on the problem over the summer.

Parker, who played a key role for Spurs last season after joining from West Ham, picked up the injury towards the end of last term before battling through England's Euro 2012 campaign.

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas said on Tuesday the 32-year-old is beginning to rebuild his fitness.

"Scott's having his first training sessions and we're now looking to build-up his fitness levels," he told the club's official website.

"Not only that, it's important for a player who has been out to get a feel for his team-mates again, to stop training individually and get together with the group.

"We'll build-up his fitness and then we can look at the options for him."
