Kazaiah Sterling has returned to Tottenham to receive treatment on a thigh injury he suffered in Doncaster’s Yorkshire derby victory over Rotherham United last month.

The 20-year-old, who is currently on a season-long loan deal with the League One outfit, has made a bright start to his loan spell, scoring once and providing one assist in his four appearances for Donny.

The club thought the injury was initially a dead leg, but it turned out to be a thigh problem, that has kept Sterling out of action for more than five weeks.

Sterling, who made just one appearance for his parent club in their 2-0 FA Cup 4th Round defeat at Crystal Palace earlier this year, is likely to miss Doncaster’s game against Oxford United on Saturday, but boss Darren Moore, who has been speaking to Doncaster Free Press, thinks the striker is not far off a return to senior action.

He said: “Since he got the injury he’s been away and we’ve nurtured him back, we’ve given him the treatment, he’s returned back to his parent club and he’s had a couple of scans.

“Hopefully he’s slowly getting back into training. It’s one of those where we’ve got to build him up. With Kazaiah his game is about energy, power and speed.

“He’s such an electrifying player that the last thing we want is for him to explode into a burst of speed and for something untoward to happen.”
