Tottenham have been handed a boost on the injury front with the news that Erik Lamela is now back in full training with the first team. The winger has missed the start of the season, and most of the pre-season work, after picking up a thigh injury during the run of fixtures in the USA.
The former record signing from Roma missed the opening day win at Newcastle but he posted on Tuesday that he was back in training and ready to go which is a relief to both player and club.
He posted on Instagram: “Happy to be back, great session today.”
The 26-year-old has suffered more than his fair share on injury problems and was sidelined for over a year with a hip issue but the club have retained their faith in him and handed him a new four-year deal last month.
Lamela will be hoping to be in the squad for the Fulham clash this weekend.
