West Ham's centre back Winston Reid is set to make his comeback this weekend, just in time to play against the club he could be joining this summer.
New Zealand international Reid has missed the last three games for the Irons with a hamstring injury but is set to return for the Sunday lunch time derby at White Hart Lane with Tottenham.
Reid's contract expires at the end of the season and it is not expected that the defender will sign a new deal in East London. The Daily Mirror reports that Reid is set to sign on with Mauricio Pochettino's side on a Bosman free transfer.
Ever since Pochettino joined Tottenham he has made the defence his priority. Federico Fazio, Eric Dier, Ben Davies, Michel Vorm and DeAndre Yedlin all joined the club, while Michael Dawson and Kyle Naughton have left North London.
Current club captain Younes Kaboul and Romania captain Vlad Chiriches are both set to move in the summer. Kaboul has fallen far from grace, and his performances have left so much to be desired that he is now, at best, fourth choice. Chiriches has found more game time but only as a back up right back.
Reid should provide a ready-to-go replacement for Kaboul and Chiriches, and keep Dier, Fazio and Jan Vertonghen on their toes. He can make an early impression at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
