Spurs may welcome back Sandro for the second leg of their Europa League last-32 tie against Dnipro.

The 24-year-old Brazil midfielder has returned to full training, having been sidelined since suffering a calf injury in December.

Kyle Walker (hip) could also return but Spurs, who trail 1-0 from the first leg in Ukraine, will be without Etienne Capoue and Danny Rose after they picked up knee injuries in Sunday's defeat at Norwich, while Toronto FC-bound Jermain Defoe will bid goodbye on the pitch at half-time due to a hamstring injury.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Friedel, Gomes, Walker, Naughton, Dawson, Vertonghen, Fryers, Veljkovic, Dembele, Capoue, Onomah, Sandro, Lennon, Eriksen, Bentaleb, Paulinho, Chadli, Townsend, McAvoy, Sigurdsson, Adebayor, Soldado, Kane.
