Tottenham lose Vertonghen for festive programme

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen is set to miss their festive programme.

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen is set to miss their festive programme.

The Daily Mail says Vertonghen damaged ankle ligaments in the 2-1 win at Fulham on December 4 and will miss league games against the likes of Liverpool, Southampton and Manchester United, as well as the Capital One Cup quarter-final against West Ham a week Wednesday and the third-round FA Cup tie at Arsenal on January 4.

The 26-year-old Belgian is regarded as a quick healer, and Spurs’ medical staff are monitoring his response to treatment after a second MRI scan on Monday. However, a four-week absence is seen as the absolute minimum.
