Fulham defender Tete edging towards return

Fulham have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the clash with Leicester City on Monday night.

Everyone came through unscathed after Sunday’s 3-2 home defeat by Everton – and just as good, there’s light at the end of the tunnel for Kenny Tete.

The right-back tore a calf just before half-time in the 3-0 home defeat by Aston Villa at the end of September and needed specialist treatment.

However, the player who cost Whites around £2m from Olympique Lyonnais in the transfer window has returned to “modified” training, according to head coach Scott Parker, who hasn’t ruled out a return before Christmas.

‘He’s slowly coming back into training – albeit modified training,” Parker explained.

“Kenny’s working hard with rehab and he’s slowly drip-fed himself up.

“He’s on the right path, and yes, it’s been too long, but with these sorts of things you need to tread carefully and not take too many risks.”
