An insight into the fitness levels of sidelined Tottenham Hotspur star Ryan Sessegnon has been provided on Thursday afternoon.
And the news is of an altogether positive nature for club and player alike.
Wing-back Sessegnon, of course, has spent the last three weeks on the treatment table in north London, owing to a hamstring injury picked up during a Premier League meeting with Everton.
The blow could not have come at a more inopportune moment for the former Fulham talent, who had just begun to cement himself as a regular fixture on the left of Antonio Conte's back-5.
If the latest word stemming from the media on Thursday is anything to go by, though, then Sessegnon should soon return to stake his claim for a starting berth once more.
As per a report from the reliable James Olley of ESPN, the 21-year-old has his sights firmly set on returning to the pitch in Tottenham's clash with Brighton on April 16th.
This means that, all going well, Sessegnon should miss just two more fixtures:
'Sources have told ESPN that Sessegnon is stepping up his rehabilitation to include outdoor work but does not want to rush himself back into action having suffered a series of muscular problems during his time in north London.'
Antonio Conte’s Spurs are set to make their post-international break return to action this coming weekend, in a Premier League meeting with Newcastle United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The clash, as will prove the case with each and every one of their outings over the closing weeks of the campaign, marks an absolutely crucial one, amid the Lilywhites' ongoing pursuit of a top-4 berth.
As things stand, Tottenham sit 5th in the English top-flight, three points adrift of north London rivals Arsenal, who also boast a game in hand.
