Son Heung-min is facing a spell on the sidelines after injuring his foot in Tottenham’s defeat of Manchester City, the club has confirmed.
The 23-year-old has settled impressively at White Hart Lane after making the £22million move from Bayer Leverkusen last month.
The South Korea forward has netted three goals in five Spurs appearances to date and would have had another was it not for the offside flag in the 4-1 Barclays Premier League win against City on Saturday.
Son was replaced by Clinton Njie with 13 minutes of the match remaining and Tottenham have confirmed he picked up an unspecified foot injury during the White Hart Lane encounter.
Our medical staff will monitor Son’s progress during his rehabilitation in order to determine when he will be fit to return to training.

An official club statement read: “Heung-Min Son sustained a foot injury in a challenge during Saturday’s win against Manchester City and has spent the past few days being reviewed.
“Our medical staff will monitor his progress during his rehabilitation in order to determine when he will be fit to return to training.”
Tottenham face Monaco at the Stade Louis II in the Europa League on Thursday evening.
