Spurs midfielder Modric desperate for return to action

Luka Modric cannot wait to get back into action for Tottenham after making a return from a fractured leg.

The Croatia midfielder played 70 minutes of Tuesday's training ground friendly against Grays Athletic.

Manager Harry Redknapp was an interested spectator and Modric hopes his recovery will soon see him back in action with the first team.

Modric told the club's official website: "I did not feel any pain and that is the most important thing. It is great to be back and I am happy. It is a relief after three months.

"I can't wait to play again. The last three months have been hard, but that's behind me now. I will take it step by step and I'll have to see now when the manager decides to put me back in the squad.''

Spurs are currently fourth in the Premier League, and Modric feels there are plenty of reasons to be positive for the rest of the campaign.

He said: "We have a great team, a great squad, lots of quality players and that is good for the club. We have plenty of options and that's positive. I hope we can keep it going.''
