Spurs defender Assou-Ekotto ruled out for season

Tottenham defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto has been ruled out for the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery.

The 23-year-old, who joined Spurs from French club Lens in June 2006, had made only two first-team appearances this season.

"Benoit had an operation on the knee on Thursday morning and the recovery time post op means he will miss the rest of the season," confirmed Sporting Director Damien Comolli.

"Benoit is still only young but he is very disappointed to be out injured for this length of time."
