Steffen feeling fine

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).
Steffen Iversen has denied reports that he is suffering from a brain condition that could rule him out for the next campaign.
Steffen, currently at home in Norway, insists that he is rested and ready to return to pre-season training on July 2 and is feeling no ill-effects from the head injuries he sustained last term.
Norway's national team doctor, Lars Engebretsen, voiced fears over Steffen’s well-being and the 25-year-old is set to undergo a check-up in London next Monday.
"I do not think I will be out for the season at all because I feel fine," said Steffen.
"I do not know where these stories have come from. There is nothing at all wrong at the moment. I have had a full break and feel perfectly okay.
"I am going to have another check-up on Monday and hopefully I will be given the all-clear to start training then. But in any case, I will certainly be linking up with the rest of the Tottenham squad for pre-season training as normal.
"I am looking forward to getting together with the rest of the lads in July and there is no problem as far as I am concerned."
