Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, the Evening Standard have confirmed.
The record-signing, who has played just 64 minutes since the Premier League got back underway last month, sustained the injury the day after Spurs’ north London derby win in training on Monday and missed Thursday’s 3-1 victory over Newcastle United.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the trip to St James’ Park, Jose Mourinho didn’t reveal the extent of the injury, but confirmed after today’s win that he won’t play again this season.
It’s been a frustrating campaign for the Frenchman, whose started just four Premier League matches under Mourinho and will now miss Spurs’ final two league games against Leicester City on Sunday and then the trip to Crystal Palace the following week.
Mourinho didn’t comment on whether Dele Alli will be fit for Sunday’s clash with the Foxes.
