Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed that winger Aaron Lennon has returned to full training as he steps up his recovery from a groin injury.
The 22-year-old England international has been sidelined since the turn of the year, but is finally making progress towards a return to action.
Redknapp told the club's official website: "Today (Tuesday) is the first day Aaron has joined in a training session, it's his first morning back.
"It was great to see him out training, but we've got to take our time, it's important he doesn't break down and have another setback.
"We'll see how he goes this week, the physios will monitor his progress and they will let us know when he's ready to come back and start playing again.
"He's getting closer and that's good news."
