Defoe on track for swift return

Published Add your comment

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe could make an earlier-than-expected return to action in the north London derby on November 20 after two months out with torn ankle ligaments.

It was feared Defoe would be out for "around three months" following surgery to repair the damage done while on international duty against Switzerland on September 7. But he could now be on track to make his comeback slightly sooner, with the short trip to the Emirates Stadium later this month seemingly on his radar.

"I'm looking at two more weeks out before I am back training properly," Defoe told The Sun.

"I'm feeling great and it has gone better than expected."
