Tottenham defender Vertonghen sidelined until December

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen has been ruled out of action until December due to a hamstring injury.

The Belgian suffered the injury against Huddersfield on September 29.

He will now miss key fixtures against Manchester City on October 29 and Chelsea on November 24.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino had criticised Belgium boss Roberto Martinez for realising information about Vertonghen's injury before the club had confirmed its severity with a second scan.
