Tottenham defender William Gallas could face West Ham this weekend after a scan revealed his hamstring injury is not as bad as first feared.
The 33-year-old pulled up during a training session on Tuesday and boss Harry Redknapp had been left fearing the Frenchman could be set for a spell on the sidelines.
But Spurs, who are still fighting for a top-four place in the Premier League and are through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, have now confirmed Gallas did not suffer a fresh injury during the session.
A statement on the club’s official website read: “A scan (on Wednesday) has reported that William Gallas has not suffered a fresh hamstring injury.
“The France defender had pulled up in training yesterday concerned about his hamstring.”
“He will now be assessed over the coming days to determine his availability for this weekend's home Premier League fixture against West Ham United.”
