Jan Vertonghen will be out for up to eight weeks after tearing ankle ligaments in training.

Initially thought to be sidelined for as long as four months, the fact that this proved to be an exaggeration is good news, but as Vertonghen will now miss the whole of pre-season, it could still be some time before we see him in a Spurs shirt.

Tottenham fans took the news on the chin, with most seeing this setback for Vertonghen as an opportunity for another Tottenham defender to stake a claim. Here’s how they reacted on Twitter.
