Tottenham defender Walker moving closer to comeback

Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker is hoping to make a return in the next month after spending seven months out of action with a abdominal injury, the London Evening Standard has reported.

The England international has not played a competitive match since the Europa League Round of 16 game against Benfica back in March, and was forced to undergo surgery in September after he suffered a recurrence of the problem during Tottenham’s pre-season tour of the United States.

The club remain reluctant to provide a likely return date for Walker, but they are hoping that he will be fit enough to play in competitive games by the end of November. The player himself is reportedly becoming increasingly optimistic that that target is achievable.

Walker is still yet to resume running, but when he does, the club do not feel it will be long until he can return to the first-team setup, with Mauricio Pochettino keen to have him back available as soon as possible. So far this season, summer signing Eric Dier and Kyle Naughton have deputised at right-back.
