It’s been a miserable couple of seasons for Spurs midfielder Tom Huddlestone and while the club has announced further progress in his latest comeback from injury, Tom now looks set to miss the rest of the campaign.
The announcement on the official website reads,
‘Tom Huddlestone will undergo a second stage of surgery on Friday to further his recovery following ankle surgery at the end of last year.
The midfielder has progressed well since his initial surgery, with the specialist determining that the anticipated reconstruction of a lateral ankle ligament is the next step towards the England international making a return to full fitness.’
After missing much of last season, Huddlestone returned at the end of the campaign and his contribution to securing Europa League football will be remembered for a trademark goal against Arsenal.
This season however, Tom has featured in just two games and with Scott Parker and Sandro now blocking his way into the first team too, it may be some time before we see him in a Lilywhite shirt once again.
