According to The Daily Mail, Ross Barkley’s training ground injury is much worse than initially feared and could keep the Englishman out of action for up to 3 months, endangering a potential move to Spurs.

23 year old Ross Barkley has been rumoured to be leaving Everton all Summer due to the midfielder’s strong reluctance to extend his stay at Goodison Park, with just a year left on his current deal.

The play-maker has been strongly linked with a move to Spurs throughout most of the Summer transfer window, however agreeing on a transfer fee has been the only blockade to any progress on a deal.

Just recently it had been reported that the England international had picked up a knock during a training session with Ronald Koeman’s senior squad and, according to The Daily Mail, this injury is worse than initial fears suggested.

The Daily Mail reports that Barkley has torn a hamstring and that the young midfielder will likely require surgery before his eventual return to action in approximately 3 months time.

According to BBCSport, if true, this news may seriously threaten Tottenham’s plans to snap up the creative midfielder during the current transfer window.

After having been linked with Barkley practically all Summer, I wonder if there’ll be any regret on our side that we should have done things earlier. What do you think? Do you think we’ll miss out on Barkley?

Have something to tell us about this article?

    You suggested it was a rumour but the statement you made above indicates you know this as fact. How do you know?

    In any event, Barkley id a proven failure as an attacking midfielder. His stats are woeful for goals and assists. There was yet another rumour that Poch would bring him on and nurture him in a deeper role. £25 million for a prospect? No thanks.
