Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen is set to miss the start of the season with an ankle injury.

Vertonghen will be out for three to four weeks after suffering an ankle ligament injury in their pre-season friendly with Sunderland in Hong Kong.

That means he is likely to miss their opening match of the new season against Crystal Palace on Sunday 18 August.
