Tottenham's Wayne Routledge is making a quick recovery from injury.
The 20-year-old broke his foot during Spurs' opening Premiership game of the season and he has not played since.
He was not expected to play until December at the earliest, but the England Under-21 star is now hoping to play again in the next few weeks.
"I started running last week, little jogs, and I've progressed to ten-minute jogs, accelerating, twisting and turning," Routledge said.
"It's going well. Working with the ball is the next step and then playing games.
"It's been a long, drawn-out process but hopefully it won't be too much longer. It's all going fine at the moment."
Routledge has now targeted Spurs' clash with West Ham on November 22 for his comeback.
Also looking to return against The Hammers is defender Noe Pamarot.
The full back has been sidelined for nearly six months with knee ligament damage.
