Tottenham academy starlet Roshaun Mathurin is facing a year on the sidelines after undergoing surgery on his knee injury, Football Insider have revealed.
Mathurin is rated very highly at Tottenham and is said to be viewed as a potential future first-team prospect.
The winger had a fabulous campaign for the Under-18s last time out, scoring seven times and providing two assists, and he had a strong start to the new season too, finding the back of the net in the loss to Chelsea.
However, the 17-year-old tore his anterior cruciate ligament at the end of last month in a devastating blow.
Mathurin took to social media on Tuesday to reveal he had successfully undergone an operation on his knee.

Football Insider have now confirmed that the youngster faces an extended period of rest and rehabilitation after going under the knife.
It is asserted that Mathurin could be out of competitive action for nine to twelve months.

ACL injuries are often quite difficult to recover from. We have seen cases of players not being able to return to their previous peak condition after suffering such injuries.
Mathurin is extremely unfortunate to suffer such a serious injury at a crucial stage of his development. Hopefully, the young man can battle his way back and go on to have a promising career.
