Kyle Naughton will be in the Tottenham Hotspur squad for Wednesday's League Cup tie with Brighton & Hove Albion after recovering from an ankle injury.

Tottenham Hotspur have been given a boost ahead of their League Cup tie against Brighton & Hove Albion with the news that Kyle Naughton is fit enough to return to the squad.

Naughton has been on the sidelines recently due to an ankle injury he picked up in the victory over Southampton at White Hart Lane earlier this month.

Despite initial reports suggesting that the defender was not fit enough for the fourth-round clash, Mauricio Pochettino confirmed in his pre-match press conference that he is available for selection.

Spurs are still without injured duo Nabil Bentaleb and Kyle Walker, but Federico Fazio is back in the squad after serving a one-game suspension.
