Huge injury boost for Spurs: Paul O Keefe confirms key player is expected back ‘next week’

Paul O Keefe has shared the latest on James Maddison’s injury and it is a major boost for Spurs.

The 27-year-old has been out with an ankle injury since the Chelsea game and while initially it did not look too serious, it has ended in him missing out on almost two months if action.

Recent reports suggested that he is not too far away from returning, with a return expected in late January.

But Ange Postecoglou refused to put a timeline on his return last week.

However, Paul O Keefe has today revealed that he is expected back in training next week.

When asked on X about Maddison’s return, he replied: “Should be in full training next week apparently”

This is definitely a huge boost for Spurs who have certainly missed him.

He made an instant impact at the club, both on and off the pitch. The England midfielder has 8 goal contributions in 11 league games, scoring 3 and assisting 5.

Spurs have been drawn against Manchester City in the FA Cup and he might be available for it.
