Tottenham have confirmed that Tom Huddlestone underwent ankle surgery on Friday.
The midfielder, 24, has not played since August 28 after suffering a recurrence of the ankle injury which dogged him throughout last season in the 5-1 defeat against Manchester City.
Last week Spurs boss Harry Redknapp announced that Huddlestone would require an operation on the injury – his second in the space of 11 months – and the club confirmed the operation took place on Friday.
A club statement read on Friday: “Tom Huddlestone has today (Friday) undergone a surgical procedure to his right ankle.
“The midfielder will be further assessed by the specialist in six weeks’ time, after which a time frame for a return to training will be determined.”
