Tottenham Hotspur have been handed a major fitness boost with the news that Younes Kaboul will return to training next week, reports talkSPORT.

The 27-year-old defender has been out of action since undergoing a knee operation back in August, but has responded well to treatment and rehabilitation, meaning he is now almost ready for a first-team return.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas revealed that the centre-back will take part in training on Monday, but insisted that the Frenchman will not be rushed back into action, due to the risk of an injury recurrence.

"He's going to rejoin training on Monday," confirmed the Portuguese tactician. "Still, it's going to be his first training session since August, so we have to be very, very careful. 

"Hopefully he will be able to play in two to three weeks."

Villas-Boas is suffering something of an injury crisis at White Hart Lane at the moment, with Brazilian midfielder Sandro ruled out for the remainder of the campaign, and Jermain Defoe set to miss the next month with an ankle problem.

As Tottenham prepare to welcome Newcastle United to north London this weekend, the former Chelsea manager is hoping to ride the storm, and keep his side on course for Champions League qualification this season, via a top four finish in the Premier League.
