Toby Alderweireld close to Spurs return

Spurs defender Toby Alderweireld has claimed he is finally close to full fitness again following nearly three months out.

The Belgium international has been out since the end of October with a hamstring injury but has made good progress in recent weeks and is expected to be available again soon.

Alderweireld says he is in good shape and is looking forward to getting back in Mauricio Pochettino's side to help them with their quest to secure a top-four finish and progress in the FA Cup and Champions League.

"I feel good. I feel fit. I'm strong. I feel ready to give 100 per cent again, like I always do," he told Sky Sports.

"We're going very well with Spurs in the last few seasons; getting top four every year and nearly winning the league. It's up to us to have a better season in the Champions League, too."
