Paul O’Keefe, providing a fresh update on James Maddison’s recovery journey from an ankle injury sustained during Tottenham’s encounter against Chelsea, brings promising news for Spurs fans.
Initially sidelined until February due to the severity of the injury, Maddison’s return seems closer than anticipated.
Giovani Lo Celso admirably stepped into Maddison’s shoes, delivering standout performances with two goals in three starts.
However, Lo Celso himself faces uncertainty due to a recent knock, leaving his availability for upcoming fixtures in doubt.
Meanwhile, Dejan Kulusevski’s impressive displays in the number 10 role have garnered praise, contributing significantly to Tottenham’s recent matches.
Kulusevski has played as a number 10 in the last two games and has put in man of the match performances.
But the update from O Keefe suggests that Maddison’s return is not too far away.
He reported a couple of days ago that the England midfielder stepped up his recovery in Dubai with treadmill sessions.
He has now given a fresh update confirming that he is now set to return from Dubai and could join his teammates at Hotspur Way from tomorrow to continue to build up his fitness.
He shared the update on X:
“James Maddison is to return from Dubai and join up with his teammates at Hotspur Way whilst he continues to build up his fitness. He could join up from tomorrow.”

Maddison has been a bargain signing for Spurs since his move from Leicester in the summer.
He scored 3 and assisted 5 in 11 League games and his absence has been felt.
