Harry Redknapp reports that Aaron Lennon is back in the frame to face Real Madrid tomorrow night (Wednesday, April 13).

The winger missed last week's Champions League quarter-final, first leg because of illness and that ruled him out of Saturday's Premier League win against Stoke City as well.

But 'Azza' trained on Tuesday morning and Harry said: "He feels better and he should be okay. He's available."

Steven Pienaar also trained on Tuesday after missing the first leg and Stoke with a groin problem. Harry said he was 'hopeful' the midfielder would be fit, but it was a case of 'wait and see'.

Vedran Corluka is the main doubt with an ankle problem. "He's had problems with his ankle since he injured it against AC Milan," explained Harry. "He twisted it on Saturday so we'll have to wait and see how he is tomorrow."

Niko Kranjcar is unlikely to be fit with the foot problem that ruled him out at the weekend and he joins Wilson Palacios (knee), Alan Hutton (knee), Jonathan Woodgate (groin) and Ledley King (groin) on the sidelines.

Peter Crouch also misses out through suspension after being sent off in the Bernabeu.
