Tottenham have been boosted by the news that Frederic Kanoute has started light training.

The French centre forward has been on the sidelines since damaging ankle ligaments against Leicester City in October.

Kanoute is unlikely to return to action before December, but he at least seems to be on schedule after discarding his crutches.

"Yes, it is good and I can walk normally now," Kanoute told the club's website. "I am just waiting to be able to run again.

"I am having treatment and fitness preparation - like swimming and stuff like that.

"Once I can run again I will see more clearly when I can think about going on the pitch.

"I will get through this soon and I am looking forward to playing again."
