Photos: Toby Alderweireld back in full training with Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld is down after sustaining a injury

The Belgian has been out of action since October.

Tottenham Hotspur have recently been struggling for consistent form and, for many, the reason has been the absence of star defender Toby Alderweireld.

The Belgian has been out of action since the draw against West Brom last month. He collided with team-mate Jan Vertonghen and injured his knee. It seemed, at first, a nothing injury. However, a nerve problem has caused him to spend more time on the sidelines than first anticipated.

But Spurs fans will be pleased to hear, and see, that Alderweireld is back.

The Spurs players have been training hard this week to try and put their Champions League exit to the back of their minds.

Alderweireld was pictured in many of the photos from Hotspur Way this week as he picks up his return from injury.

Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that the Belgian has no hope of featuring against Chelsea this weekend, unfortunately that tie has come around too soon for the Belgian.

Instead it looks as though the fixture with Swansea City next weekend is a far more likely return fixture for one of Spurs’ key players.
