Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed their latest injury blow after Moussa Sissoko was ruled out until April.
The French midfielder underwent scans on his right knee and it was confirmed that he required surgery to his medial collateral ligament.
News of Sissoko’s absence adds to the injury woes of Jose Mourinho who recently lost the services of Harry Kane after the striker tore his left hamstring in the New Year’s Day defeat on the south coast at Southampton.
Sissoko picked up the injury during the same match at St Mary’s and is hoped to return to training at Hotspur Way in early April.
Spurs have suffered a number of injury issues this season after Hugo Lloris dislocated his elbow earlier in the season and has yet to return to training.
Ben Davies is also out with ankle ligament damage while club record signing Tanguy Ndombele has struggled with injuries all season.
A statement on the club’s official site read: “Following a clinical assessment and scans, Moussa Sissoko has today (Tuesday) undergone surgery to the medial collateral ligament in his right knee.
“The France international sustained the injury in our fixture against Southampton, resulting in him missing our recent FA Cup tie at Middlesbrough.
“Our medical staff will monitor Moussa’s recovery before he commences rehabilitation with a view to returning to training in early April.”
