Harry Winks has spent most of the season in the shadows due to a troublesome ankle injury.
The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder has not played in a competitive match since a 6-1 thumping over Rochdale in the FA Cup in February.
According to the London Evening Standard, Winks is closing in on a return to training, which indicates that he could feature in Mauricio Pochettino’s team before the end of the season.
Winks’s injury came at a bad time as he was just finding his stride having made 21 Premier League appearances in the 2016-17 campaign.
Following last weekend’s FA Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester United, the North London club only have four games left to play this season.
Pochettino’s men will face Watford, West Bromwich Albion, Newcastle United and Leicester City.
The club may not have any silverware to fight for, but they need to secure Champions League football for next season as they currently sit fourth in the table, five points above fifth-placed Chelsea.
Following news that Winks – valued at £13.5m by Transfermarkt – could potentially make a comeback, Tottenham fans discussed whether it would be wise to play him, with some hopeful that he can make England’s World Cup squad.
