Benoit Assou-Ekotto: Nearing a return to the Tottenham squad after injury

Benoit Assou-Ekotto: Nearing a return to the Tottenham squad after injury

The Cameroon defender has been Spurs' first-choice left-back for the last four seasons but has played just three times this term after a niggling knee injury flared up in September.

The prognosis of a four-week lay-off proved too optimistic but the 28-year-old is in line to end the year on a high note after stepping up his recovery.

He posted on Twitter: "Training with the team today!!! I hope I'll remember the name of everyone."

Manager Andre Villas-Boas could also enjoy another injury boost, ahead of Saturday's visit of Swansea, with Scott Parker due back.

The England midfielder has not played for the first team all after suffering an Achilles injury in the summer but turned out for the reserves and the U21s in the last week.
