Tottenham have received a welcome boost following their Champions League heartache with the news that Tom Huddlestone has resumed full training.
Spurs can be forgiven for being down in the dumps right now, after Chelsea's penalty shootout victory over Bayern Munich on Saturday demoted them to a place in next season's Europa League.
This has prompted renewed speculation that Gareth Bale and Luka Modric could leave White Hart Lane during the transfer window, and Spurs fans face a summer of uncertainly.
However, they have been delivered some positive news of sorts after Huddlestone began full training again on Tuesday, following his most recent operation on a troublesome ankle injury.
The 25-year-old underwent surgery in February, and ankle ligament damage restricted him to only four appearances for Spurs last season.
Unless he suffers a relapse over the course of the summer, Huddlestone is expected to be fully fit in time for the next campaign.
