Tottenham have been boosted by the return of long-term absentees Erik Lamela and Danny Rose to team training.

Lamela has not played for nearly a year due to persistent problems in both hips, while Rose has been sidelined since January with a knee injury.

Both players have undergone surgery since they last played but the duo joined group training on Wednesday, with the club confirming that they were continuing their rehabilitation alongside the rest of the first-team squad.

Since featuring against Liverpool in last season's League Cup fourth-round defeat on Oct. 25, Lamela has spent time in his home city of Buenos Aires on compassionate leave after his brother was injured in an accident, as well as in Rome, where he was treated for his hip problem at his former club Roma.

Rose, meanwhile, is now a controversial figure at Tottenham after giving an interview on the eve of the current season in which he questioned the club's ambition, said he should be earning more money and admitted he was open to offers from other sides.
