Ahead of tomorrow's Europa League qualifier with Dinamo Tbilsi in Georgia, Tottenham Hotspur have released their team news. Aaron Lennon and Jan Vertonghen have not made the the trip, but both are expected to be ready to face Swansea on Sunday.

Vertonghen suffered an injury while Tottenham Hotspur were playing in the Barclay's Asia Trophy and only just made it back to fitness in time for the Premier League season opener against Crystal Palace. Villas-Boas stated:

"With Jan, bearing in mind his injury in Asia, we decided to leave him out to have a full recovery and treatment on the ankle."

"We’ve decided it would be difficult for him to complete both matches, Dinamo Tbilisi on Thursday and Swansea on Sunday.

Lennon, meanwhile, was having some troubles with his foot prior to the Palace match. He too managed to make it through the match, but the team will be resting him during midweek so that he can play on the weekend.

The only other bit of team news that Spurs released was that Lewis Holtby has finally returned to training following his recovery from a knee injury he suffered while on international duty. The German midfielder completed his first training session on Monday.
