Alex Pitchard: Has undergone surgery on his troublesome ankle injury

Tottenham midfielder Alex Pritchard has undergone surgery on his troublesome ankle injury and has been ruled out of action until the new year.

The England Under-21 midfielder initially suffered the problem in the opening match of the European Under-21 Championship but returned to action and featured for Spurs against Everton in August.

But the ankle is still troubling him and the midfielder – who starred last season while on loan at Brentford – has now gone under the knife.

“The club can confirm that Alex Pritchard has undergone surgery on his right ankle,” a statement from the club’s official website said.

“The England Under-21 international originally sustained the injury in a challenge against Sweden during the summer’s European Under-21 Championships, which ruled him out for the rest of the tournament. The expected recovery and rehabilitation is likely to see him return to training in the new year.”
