Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino reveals that Victor Wanyama is doing well but he his return date cannot be assertain now.

The 26-year-old Wanyama midfielder has been a key player since reuniting with his former Southampton boss Pochettino in the summer of 2016 has been out since September with a knee injury but is progressing well in his rehabilitation work outdoors.

The Argentina coach said that he can't put a timeframe on his comeback of the Kenyan international Wanyama, but there is no clear estimate on when the former Celtic midfielder will actually return to training properly in the near future.

“We’re positive, his knee is reacting well but it’s still too early to say when it’s possible for him to join the group,”  Mauricio quoted by club official website

“We need to assess him day by day, week by week and we’ll see in the next few weeks if he can join the group.

“But yes, he’s in a good mood and we are happy so far. He has to keep working and if all goes well, hopefully, he can join the group as soon as possible.”

Wanyama made 36 appearances Premier League last season and was only on the losing side in four of those contests finishing second behind eventual winner Chelsea.

Wanyama has only played games for Spurs this term before going to the treatment table.
