Former England international Andros Townsend is training at Tottenham - returning to the club he left in 2016.
Townsend is a free agent after leaving Everton in the summer and had a spell at Burnley, who decided against offering the 32-year-old a contract.
And Mail Sport understands Tottenham have opened the door to their state-of-the-art HQ in Enfield to Townsend, who came through their academy after joining as an eight-year-old.
For now Townsend is training with a view to maintaining his fitness as he seeks a return to professional football and there is no indication that head coach Ange Postecoglou is even considering handing him a contract.
It is understood that he is not involved with first-team training.
Nevertheless, Townsend's training stint at Spurs marks an emotional return to the club he has such an affinity with.
Townsend grew up a Tottenham supporter and eventually went on to make 93 appearances for the club - scoring 11 goals.
He became an England international during his time at Tottenham, breaking into the national squad in September 2013.
Townsend left Spurs in 2016, joining Crystal Palace where he made 185 appearances before joining Everton in 2021.
But the attacker has now come full circle and is back at Tottenham training as he seeks the next step in his career.Read on m.allfootballapp.com
