Tottenham posted an update on defender Micky Van de Ven as he works his way back to fitness.

Tottenham are aiming to have defender Micky Van de Ven in the new year but have posted a video on the club's social media handles where he is working out and moving quite freely which has got fans fan excited.

The centre-back limped off in the first half of Tottenham's chaotic defeat to Chelsea as he sprinted after a ball over the top, immediately sparking fears that the injury was a serious one.

Many thought he would have needed surgery but after a few days when the swelling subsided, the manager Ange Postecoglou confirmed he might not need to have a knife go through him even though he might still be out until January.

The Spurs boss said: "Micky with a hamstring injury [which] we knew was fairly significant.

"We're looking at a couple of months [out] into the new year.

The statement meant he would miss the crucial fixture in Christmas but the latest video posted has boosted fans and there is a feeling that he might even be back sooner rather than later.

The Dutch defender has been a huge hit in north London since making a £43million move, until his injury, Spurs had not lost a game in the league but his absence and the suspension of fellow defender Cristian Romero has weakened the team and they have no lost two games going into the international break.

Tottenham also have James Maddison out injured while midfielder Yves Bissouma will miss the Aston Villa game that comes after the international break.
