Spurs' Alex Pritchard posts video of training return after injury

Tottenham Alex Pritchard

Big things are expected from the Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder this season.

Spurs midfielder Alex Pritchard has posted a video of him involved in intense training at Hotspur way, as he inches closer to a return from an ankle injury.

Tottenham have an abundance of young talent at their club, arguably more than any other club in the UK currently, and it's fair to say that Pritchard is one of the very brightest of those stars.

The 22-year-old has developed hugely over the last couple of years, going from a promising youngster that caught the eye in the NextGen tournament, to Football League nominations for best player after outstanding spells at Swindon and then last season with Brentford.

Pritchard scored 12 times for the Bees last season and assisted 7 more as they got to the playoff semi-finals, and he caught the eye for England Under-21s last season as well after gatecrashing the ill-fated European Championships squad.

However, just as Spurs supporters were looking forward to Pritchard returning to White Hart Lane to challenge for a first team role, he suffered an ankle injury in the win over eventual Euro 2015 winners Sweden, ruling him out for the rest of the tournament and casting doubts over when he would be available.

But Pritchard's video shows his return to training is coming along nicely, as he puts together some fairly intense solo work ahead of a what may be an impending return to training with his teammates.

Though it would be a surprise if the player made the squad for the opener against Manchester United, it certainly looks like a return may happen at some point this month.
