Mauricio Pochettino says Kyle Walker has returned to training and could return in December – but the Spurs boss has injury concerns ahead of Sunday’s trip to Hull.

Walker has not played a competitive game since March, suffering a pelvic injury which ruled him out of the World Cup, and eventually having surgery at the start of September.

But Pochettino said today: “He’s close, he started to train with the group this week. He’s getting better, he’s ok but after his long injury we need time to recover his feeling and his form and for him to be fit and have the facility to play. He’s close, maybe [he can come back] in the next few weeks.”

Pochettino is sweating on the fitness of a handful of players as Spurs prepare to resume their Premier League campaign at Hull City on Sunday – although he is keeping his cards close to his chest.

“We have some doubts,” he said. “We need to analyse it tomorrow when we have our last training session, but after the international break we have some problems. We need tomorrow to decide the squad that will travel to Hull.

“It’s difficult to give their names because we need to analyse it tomorrow. Some players can maybe be in a position to play or to travel, but other players maybe not.”
