Steed Malbranque has taken his first significant steps towards making a debut in a Spurs shirt last week starting ball work following the hernia operation that has delayed his introduction.

The French midfielder joined from Fulham at the end of the transfer window, but the need for surgery saw to it that the playmaker has been a frustrated onlooker as the season takes shape.

There was a smile on the face of Steed as he reported it is now a case of onwards and upwards in his quest for fitness.

"I feel good and think I can move forward and begin training in the next week or 10 days," he revealed. "It is very positive and I am confident I will be able to do it.

"I kicked the ball for the first time since my surgery this morning [Tuesday] and felt no pain so it is looking good. I am just running with the ball and getting my touch back at the moment.

"It has been very frustrating for me. I joined a new club carrying an injury and it has been difficult because I so much want to be involved. I will come back stronger though and ready to play."
