Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose is expected to return to action in two weeks’ time, according to The Independent.
There were initial fears that the England international was facing another lengthy spell on the treatment table.
During Spurs’ victory over Southampton on Boxing Day, Rose suffered a knee injury and has not been seen on the pitch since.
The 27-year-old spent nine months out of action with a previous knee problem, but concerns that the left-back is facing a similar term have been eased.
The Independent reports that Rose is hoping to be fit by the end of the month.
The North London outfit were without Rose for a big chunk of time and managed to cope thanks to Ben Davies taking on the role.
Losing him at this stage is not so much a problem for Tottenham, but more for the player.
After picking up eight starts, Rose was building himself back to optimum fitness, and now this blow has inflicted a setback.
The big questions will be whether the left-back will get a consistent run of games when he returns and if it will affect any potential summer transfers.
