Tottenham Hotspur defender Cameron Carter-Vickers is set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering an ankle injury.
The 22-year-old joined the Championship outfit on a season long loan deal last month having previously played in the Championship for Sheffield United, Ipswich Town, Swansea City, Stoke City and Luton Town.

“Unfortunately, especially when there’s now nine subs and he would’ve been involved, he picked up an injury where he rolled his ankle and I think he will out for a few weeks.”
