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."
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.
