Tottenham should have Younes Kaboul and Étienne Capoue back from injury in time for the Capital One game against Hull, as well as a potential appearance from Emmanuel Adebayor in the Europa League, according to The Daily Star.
Adebayor is supposedly in line for his first Spurs appearance of the season against Sheriff Tiraspol, after travelling with the squad to Moldova. He'll be hungry for goals and to prove himself after a somewhat disappointing campaign last season.
Aaron Lennon could also make his first start since recovering from a foot injury, after coming on as a substitute in Tottenham's 2-0 away win at Aston Villa at the weekend.
The rapid winger has been out for 11 games, in which time he's seen Eric Lamela sign for Spurs' record fee and Andros Townsend's evolution from Tottenham reserve to full England international - and his return, along with his pace, has been eagerly anticipated.
French duo Kaboul and Capoue have been out with injury but could be set to make a return in the Capital One Cup game against Hull next week.
Kaboul has been out since Spurs' 3-0 win against Tromsø, and Capoue since the start of September in the 1-0 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
They'll both be great re-additions to the squad and will provide AVB with far more depth and cover for the team.
Kaboul, if he can stay fit, will be a strong and dominant force at the back and the same can be said for Capoue, whose presence can boss the centre of midfield and use his physical attributes and football ability to take charge against the opposition.
This news of a quadruple of returns to the first team see Spurs with an almost fully fit squad to take into their next run of games.
They take on Sheriff Tiraspol tomorrow, then Hull on Saturday, and then again on Wednesday in the Capital One Cup. It's a busy week for the club but with the quality and depth Villas-Boas has at his disposal, they look ready for business.
