Defoe facing three-month lay-off

  Tottenham have confirmed Jermain Defoe has been ruled out for "around three months" after undergoing surgery on torn ankle ligaments.

Spurs' fears over the injury the striker suffered in England's European Championship qualifier in Switzerland on Tuesday night were confirmed following consultation with a specialist on Thursday. It means the 27-year-old could miss all of his club's Champions League group matches, as well as two England internationals.

A statement on Spurs' official website read: "Following a review by an ankle specialist, Jermain Defoe underwent surgery to repair torn ligaments in his right ankle on Thursday evening. The striker was forced off with the injury during England's European Championship qualifier in Switzerland and has been ruled out of action for around three months."
