Michael Dawson is back in training, but won't be considered for the weekend's match against Fulham. Kyle Walker and Jan Vertonghen also miss out again, meaning the Spurs backline almost picks itself.
Kyle Naughton and Younes Kaboul seem nailed on. Vlad Chiriches, and Danny Rose will likely line-up against Fulham, but Zeki Fryers is an option to replace either man. Apr 18 - 12:47 AM

Tottenham's Michael Dawson is in contention to play in Sunday's trip to Liverpool after returning to full training on Tuesday.

Dawson may well be ready, but Tim Sherwood could leave the defender on the bench against Liverpool's attack. For all his qualities, Dawson lacks pace in the extreme and he could find things tough going again the likes to Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling. Younes Kaboul has been performing well so he has a chance of keeping his place alongside Jan Vertonghen, as Spurs try to get something at Anfield to keep their slim hopes of a top four finish alive.

Club captain Michael Dawson has signed a new three-year contract with Tottenham that will keep him at White Hart Lane until 2016.

Dawson is a fine example to all aspiring (and existing) Premier League footballers. At the start of last season he was Andre Villas-Boas' fourth choice central defender and was on the verge of joining relegation-bound QPR, but he decided to stay and fight for his place at Spurs. He is now one half of the first choice partnership alongside Jan Vertonghen, has made the captaincy his own after Ledley King's retirement and has been rewarded with a contract that will take him well in to his thirties. Dawson will face competition from Younes Kaboul and Vlad Chiriches as the season progresses but for now he should be considered a starter for Premier League games.

Tottenham have continued their summer spending with the signing of Steaua Bucharest centre-back Vlad Chiriches.

With William Gallas retiring and Steven Caulker's surprise sale to Cardiff, Tottenham had only three recognised central defenders in the squad but Chiriches now brings that number to four. The deal is for around £8.5million and the highly-rated Romanian will provide competition to Michael Dawson, Jan Vertonghen and Younes Kaboul.
