Andre Villas-Boas has revealed his delight that Aaron Lennon has returned to full training following a foot injury.

The Tottenham winger has not featured for the club since the opening game of the season against Crystal Palace where he sustained the injury.

He has now recovered and is able to take part in full training during the international break.

Although not available for the England national team, he could well be in line to appear for Tottenham once the Premier League restarts. Spurs face Aston Villa away on the 20th October.

Villas-Boas took great joy in revealing the news and believes an important player has returned to the team.

He told Tottenham's official website: "I'm extremely happy.

"It's been a long time out for a player of Aaron's importance and the team is delighted with his return.

"He's proved year after year how important he is for us and to have him back is a major plus."

Regarding whether Lennon could feature for Tottenham in the match at Villa Park, AVB said: "Let's see how he works on the international break.

"Azza has kept his fitness very high with our medical department."

Lennon, 26, played 34 Premier League games for Tottenham last season scoring four goals and assisting seven. He also has 21 caps for England.
