Tottenham Hotspur Receive Micky van de Ven Injury Boost


When Could Micky van de Ven Return To Action?

The Netherlands defender has been out of action for the last two months after picking up an injury in the 4-1 loss to Chelsea in November, but it seems that he is finally set to return. Spurs insider Paul O Keefe has reported that

It is now “imminent” that Van de Ven will rejoin the starting lineup.

He further states that Postecoglou will have the final say on whether to play the center back in Spurs’ FA Cup match against Burnley on Friday, January 5, or whether to save him for the team’s January 14 trip to Old Trafford to play Manchester United. O Keefe adds that “barring any late setbacks,” the 22-year-old should be back in the lineup for at least one of these games, if not both.

For the manager, who has spent the last few weeks having to play center-backs like Emerson Royal and Ben Davies, this will be a huge help.

Are Tottenham Planning Any Signings?

Even though Tottenham might have received a boost in terms of a return for a key player, it is unlikely to impact

their plans to use the January transfer window to bolster the team. The Genoa defender Radu Dragusin is still rumored to be on the Lilywhites’ radar. Even earlier in the season, Ange Postecoglou made hints in an interview that he would like to add another center-back to his team.

Nevertheless, if van de Ven can get back to full fitness, a spot in the backline is all but assured. until sustaining an injury, the 22-year-old defender helped Spurs retain an excellent defensive record and kept three clean sheets in 11 Premier League games until suffering a setback against Chelsea. He was praised as “lightning-fast” for his pace and recovery speed last year.
