Football - Defoe back for Spurs

Tottenham will have striker Jermain Defoe back from injury in time to travel to face Norwich in the Barclays Premier League on Wednesday.

PA Sport

The England international missed the 2-1 FA Cup fourth round defeat to Leeds with a pelvic injury but has had an injection to help him be fit to face the Canaries and does not require surgery.

New signing Lewis Holtby is also in contention to make his debut with defender William Gallas fit after a calf problem.

Emmanuel Adebayor (African Cup of Nations), Younes Kaboul and Sandro (both knee) are all missing and Tom Huddlestone (leg) will not be risked.
