Nabil Bentaleb Spurs

Nabil Bentaleb has returned to Tottenham Hotspur training.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Nabil Bentaleb has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his delight at returning to training.

The Algeria international has been training with his Tottenham teammates ahead of the Premier League match against Newcastle United away from home at St. James’ Park this weekend.

The 21-year-old, though, will miss the match on Sunday afternoon, as he is still recovering from a knee injury, as revealed by head coach Mauricio Pochettino on Spursofficial website.

Bentaleb is happy just to have returned to training, and has shared his joy on Twitter.

Bentaleb enjoyed a successful season during the 2014-15 campaign, but this term he has not done so well.

A combination of injuries and competition for places has seen the young Algerian limited to just five appearances in the Premier League this season.

It must have been really frustrating for the youngster not to have been able to play a meaningful role for Tottenham this season, but he is only 21 and very talented.

Hopefully for Bentaleb, he will get match fit soon and will be able to re-establish himself in the Spurs starting lineup next season.
