Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama returned to training for the Premier League club on Monday as he recovers from a knee injury sustained at the start of the campaign.

The 26-year-old Kenyan international, who missed just two league games last season, featured in the north London club’s first two matches before picking up the injury ahead of the home match against Burnley in August.

“Victor Wanyama joined part of training today as he continues his rehab,” Tottenham said on their official Twitter account, along with a picture of the player in action.

Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks and Mousa Dembele have deputised in Wanyama’s absence with the former also being utilised in defence following Toby Alderweireld’s hamstring injury last month.

Tottenham beat Stoke City 5-1 last weekend to remain sixth in the league and host 13th-placed Brighton and Hove Albion at Wembley on Wednesday.

This comes after Tottenham Hotspurs fans in Kenya staged a walk in solidarity with the injured Kenyan midfielder in Nairobi. News of the midfielder’s recovery may not only be a reprieve for the fans but also the North London club which has been drawn against Italian Champions Juventus.
