Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed striker Jermain Defoe has resumed full training.
Defoe has been sidelined since the end of January after sustaining a stress fracture to his right foot.
The England international has since undergone surgery and is now in contention to make his comeback for Tottenham.
And Redknapp is delighted to have Defoe, who re-signed for Spurs from Portsmouth in the winter transfer window, back at his disposal.
"It's a big boost for us," said Redknapp. "He was talking to the lads earlier and told them he couldn't sleep the night before because he was so excited about returning to training.
"He was up very early, just like a kid at his first day at school. He's full of enthusiasm and he trained superbly, he looked really sharp, scored some fantastic goals.
"He's back and that's a big bonus for us. I'm sure there are a few goals left in him before the end of the season."
