Harry Redknapp reports that Peter Crouch is available for the trip to West Brom on Saturday.

The striker had to be substituted at half-time after picking up a rib injury last time out against Wigan.

However, he's returned to training this week and is in the squad for the Hawthorns.

"Crouchy's fine, he's worked hard all week," said Harry. "He's fit and ready to play."

David Bentley has also trained for the last two weeks following his pre-season ankle injury and played the full 90 minutes in our Spurs XI friendly against QPR on Tuesday.

Our four new signings - Rafael van der Vaart, William Gallas, Sandro and Stipe Pletikosa - trained together with the rest of the squad for the first time on Thursday and all are available to play.

As has been well documented, Jermain Defoe and Michael Dawson will both miss out after picking up ankle and knee/ankle injuries respectively on England duty.

They join long-term absentees Jonathan Woodgate (groin) and Jamie O'Hara (back) on the sidelines.
