Harry Redknapp will make late decisions on the fitness of defenders Ledley King, William Gallas and Younes Kaboul ahead of Saturday's trip to Fulham.

William and Younes have both been sidelined since last month's win over Wolves due to groin and hamstring injuries respectively.

But the French pair have returned to training this week and will be assessed ahead of the visit to Craven Cottage.

Harry also admits he will have to consider ‘the balancing act' involved in deciding whether or not to play captain Ledley King in this London derby with a busy week ahead.

In his press conference at Spurs Lodge today, he reported: "We've got one or two coming back. Younes is getting fitter and is back training but I'm not sure if he'll be ok for tomorrow, we'll have to see. William is the same.

"We're not too bad really, just got to see how Ledley is. It's a juggling act with him this week. Do we play him on Saturday and maybe get two league games out of him, or do we play him in the Champions League and have him miss two league games? It's a bit of a balancing act."

Longer-term absentees Jermain Defoe, Michael Dawson, Jonathan Woodgate and Jamie O'Hara remain on the sidelines.
