Tottenham latest: Sandro on his return, Fergie on Levy

Also, supporters trust on pyrotechnics, why a Dortmund striker won't head to the Lane, and AVB on Harry Kane.

Midfielder Sandro has spoken of his emotions after returning to the Tottenham Hotspur side following a serious knee injury.

After making several starts in the cups this season, and a few substitute appearances in the league he told the club’s website: ‘This means everything to me because it was hard to be out of the Premier League.

‘It was hard work [returning from injury], physical every day, tough times.’

Andre Villas-Boas has said it is likely that England Under-21 forward Harry Kane is likely to leave the club on loan despite being ‘excellent in training,’ and admitted the young striker hasn’t had as much game time as the Spurs boss would like to give him.

‘At the moment what I’ve been speaking to Harry about is that we are studying the possibility of him going out on loan as well – but we are happy for him to try and compete for his place, and so is he.

‘We have lots of options up front and he understands that but he is happy to continue to push for his place. He has been given that opportunity because he has been excellent in training, so we believe a lot in his future.’

The Tottenham Supporters Trust has said they are against the use of pyrotechnics inside football grounds after a linesman was struck by a smoke bomb from the Tottenham away end at Aston Villa on Sunday.

A spokesman for the Trust said: ‘The Trust are against the use of pyrotechnics at football matches and we will endeavour to educate fans so they know they penalties they may face.’

Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has said he will never join Tottenham if they renewed their interest in him after Spurs tried to sign the player from St Etienne.

The Gabon international said: ‘Tottenham tried to sign me in June 2012.

‘But in the end everything became a bit weird. I didn’t really like the way things were done.’

And finally, Sir Alex Ferguson has published his book mentioning characters from several clubs including Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

The former Manchester United boss described his dealings with Levy over the transfer of Dimitar Berbatov as ‘a scrap’ but praised Levy for putting Tottenham as his number one priority, which the Scotsman described as ‘no bad thing.’
