The 24-year-old, who has not played competitively since March, came through unscathed in a full 90-minute friendly at the weekend and has now been included in Tottenham’s squad to face the Turkish giants on Thursday.

Walker, who also played in 67 minutes of an Under-21 game last week, underwent lower abdominal surgery in early September after being ruled out of the World Cup with the problem.

He had hoped to avoid surgery but the decision to undergo the procedure ruled him out of Tottenham’s pre-season programme.

Walker now also faces a fight to get back into the national set up as the emergence of Southampton’s Nathaniel Clyne has put his place under threat.
