Tottenham injury news: Victor Wanyama returns to training

The Kenyan missed Spurs’ first two Premier League fixtures after suffering a recurrence of a knee injury during pre-season

Tottenham have been handed a major injury boost with news that midfielder Victor Wanyama has returned to training.

The Kenyan captain suffered a recurrence of a knee injury which he picked up last summer during Spurs’ US pre-season tour.

That injury kept the midfielder out of Spurs’ first two games of the season, but the ​club confirmed that Wanyama has returned to training ahead of their trip to face ​Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday night.

However, the clash against Man United will come too soon for Wanyama, whose return is a huge boost to the Mauricio Pochettino led side, who did not sign any player during the transfer window.

Wanyama was a very influential figure in helping Tottenham finish second in 2016/2017 but has struggled with an injury since the start of last season.
