Tottenham Hotspur have announced that Alfie Whiteman has undergone surgery on his left knee after tearing his meniscus (Tottenham).
The Spurs third-choice keeper is said to now be looking ahead to a period of rehabilitation and recovery at Hotspur Way. Whiteman will, as reported by Tottenham, likely return to first-team training in May.
It hasn’t been a season of action for the Tottenham shot-stopper, with Whiteman only featuring in one senior game in the Europa League.
Unfortunately for the Spurs man, he currently has Premier League winner, Joe Hart and World Cup-winning captain, Hugo Lloris ahead of him on the Tottenham team sheet.
The academy graduate played around eight minutes against Ludogorets in the group stages of the Europa League, while appearing on the bench another four times (TransferMarkt).
Even when it comes to U21 action, the 22-year-old has played just three Premier League 2 fixtures all season, keeping one clean sheet in that time (TransferMarkt).
Everyone at The Spurs Web would like to wish Alfie a fast recovery.
