He was originally given eight weeks to return but has suffered complications and only recently returned to light training with Tottenham's youth team.

If Modric gets through the game manager Harry Redknapp is hopeful he could feature against Wolves at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

And the 24 year-old is hoping to win his race against time to be fit for the Premier League clash with struggling Wolves at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

His return could be timely after fellow midfielder Wilson Palacios suffered an injury during Saturday night's 2-2 draw at Everton.

Palacios was cleared to travel back from Liverpool with the team after visiting hospital as a precaution following the rib injury.

The midfielder will be assessed over the course of the week to determine his availability for the weekend fixture against Wolves.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are understood to be giving a trial to Real Sociedad goal keeper Asier Riesgo. If he impresses, the 26-year-old could be signed as cover for Carlo Cudicini, who is expected to miss most of the season after injuring his pelvic and breaking his wrists in a motorcycle accident.
