Steven Bergwijn is ‘making good progress’ in his recovery from an ankle injury as Tottenham near a fully fit squad ahead of the Premier League’s possible restart, according to the Athletic.

Bergwijn, who joined Spurs from PSV Eindhoven in the January transfer window and scored on his debut against Manchester City, would have missed the run-in had English football not been put on hold due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

But now, with the Premier League potentially set to resume next month, Bergwijn looks to be closing in on a return to match fitness and could play a part for Tottenham in the battle for Champions League qualification.

The Athletic claims the Dutchman is very much on the mend, while the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Moussa Sissoko – all sidelined with injuries before the break – have returned to full fitness.

All of which is great news for Jose Mourinho. It looks like the Portuguese will have a full group of players to choose from if and when the campaign restarts, which may result in some positive headaches when it comes to team selection.
