Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt an injury blow ahead of next season with Japhet Tanganga likely to be sidelined for around two months, according to the Evening Standard.

Ryan Mason confirmed during Friday’s press conference that the academy product had suffered an ankle ligament problem and scans have since revealed he has suffered ankle ligament damage.

The defender was injured during the latter stages of the 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last week which resulted in him having to be stretched off the field of play.

The report claims that Tanganga is likely to miss the beginning of Tottenham’s pre-season training ahead of the 21/22 campaign which is expected to see a new head coach in place to try and break back into the top four.

Tanganga experienced a frustrating season due to injury which saw him limited to just six Premier League starts.

The 22-year-old will certainly be looking for an injury-free campaign next season to become the first-choice right-back with question marks raised over whether Serge Aurier will still be at the club and Matt Doherty having experienced a disappointing first year in North London.
