Pre-season training is already well under way at Spurs Lodge, and Aaron Lennon is delighted with the mood in the camp as the lads look ahead to the 2008-09 campaign.
He said: "It's been good to have a break but now I'm back and feeling fresh and it's great to see the lads again in training after a long time off.
"It seems as though everyone has looked after themselves over the summer. We all knew that we'd be in for a hard pre-season, but everyone's up for it and looking forward to the coming campaign.
"We're all excited about the new season and it's also good to see new faces joining the Club as well. It's a really strong squad and everyone's buzzing."
The squad travels out to Spain later this week for what should be a testing training camp in the Mediterranean heat.
But once again, Aaron is looking forward to his and the team's fitness levels being pushed to the maximum as preparations continue.
He added: "Now we go to Spain and that will be a real test of our endurance because the climate will be hotter. It won't be easy but we're all up for the challenge."
