Tottenham captain Ledley King is around two weeks away from a return to training after undergoing groin surgery in Germany.
The England defender has not played for Tottenham since limping off during his side's 2-1 win at Fulham last October and was sent last week for the operation, which took place on Tuesday morning.
A statement on Spurs' website read: "Our club captain will fly back home later today and is expected to return to training in two weeks."
