The former Tottenham talent injured his ankle in pre-season and was due to return in January.

“Alex Pritchard is able to do some running stuff and we have to hope he perhaps can return after the next international break to team training,” Farke said. “So that would mean he is back in the middle of November, he would need additional weeks of training before he is back.

“As I mentioned a few weeks ago I think about him for the beginning of January, so perhaps he can return a little bit earlier if everything works.
