Tottenham midfielder Bentancur suffers fresh injury blow

Tottenham midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur is out until February after a new injury setback.

Damaged ankle ligaments will see Bentancur again sidelined, says PA Agency.

The 26-year-old was injured in a tackle with Aston Villa fullback Matty Cash during Sunday's home defeat. A scan on Tuesday revealed the ligament damage.

Uruguay international Bentancur was making his first start since returning from an ACL injury suffered in February.

Tottenham have now slipped to three consecutive defeats.
