Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has expressed his delight at Carlo Cudicini's successful return to training.
The Italian keeper, who signed a new-year contract this week, has been on the sidelines after a horrific motorbike accident in November.
Cudicini suffered two broken wrists and a pelvic injury and some felt the ex-Chelsea man could even retire from the game.
However, Cudicini has worked hard on his fitness and Redknapp cannot say enough about the 36-year-old's determination and professionalism.
"It is great to see Carlo out on the training pitch again after everything he has been through," he said. "He is coming on fantastic and training well.
"If anyone was going to come back from something like this it would be him.
"He is dedicated, a top professional through and through, and has been there every Saturday to support the side.
"He has been brought up in the game - his father was a great goalkeeper at AC Milan and Carlo is exactly the same, a top-class person and professional."
Meanwhile Spurs have announced new plans for their stadium project, which are to be submitted to Haringey Council this week.
The previous application received strong backing from the local community and fans alike - with more than 800 letters of support sent to Haringey Council from individuals, groups and businesses.
The design improvements contained in the new application are the culmination of consultation and discussion with the Government's Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE), English Heritage and other agencies.
The changes directly reflect the desire to find the very best solution for the club and the locality.
"We have looked again at the overall masterplan and design of buildings in the south, as well as the impact on Tottenham High Road," Levy told the club's official website. "We have used this opportunity to make further design improvements to the scheme.
"Schemes of this magnitude involve much time and effort by many parties and we are extremely grateful to everyone who has taken part in the consultation process to date.
"There is undoubtedly huge support for the development and for retaining the club in the borough. Following the consultation period on these new plans we look forward to proceeding to a Haringey Council planning committee to determine the application shortly.
"In much the same way as we persevered and delivered the training centre, we remain focused and committed to delivering a world class, increased capacity stadium, full of atmosphere and creating a thriving new environment on the High Road which would deliver regeneration benefits so important to this part of the borough and the local community."
