In-form Tottenham youngster Mikey Moore picked up a calf injury while on international duty.
This was confirmed by Spurs expert John Wenham last week who claimed that the ‘star player‘ is going to be a massive miss for the academy team.
He compared losing Moore to be the equivalent of the first team losing James Maddison.
Dr Rajpal Brar, an injury specialist, has now disclosed the severity of the injury, stating that the player has a high Grade 2 or Grade 3 tear and will not return this year.
He also assured that this would not hamper any potential loan deal in January, as the other club would be fully informed of his condition.
He told Tottenham News:
“This sounds like a high Grade 2 or Grade 3 calf injury.
“The timeline is around six weeks so he won’t be back this year but it really depends on how he responds to rehab as calf injuries can be quite finicky, especially if they’re in certain parts of the calf.
“If Spurs were to loan him out in January, the other team would be fully aware of the situation so I wouldn’t expect anything to come up unless there’s something unknown going on.“
The 16-year-old forward is one of the most talented players in Tottenham’s academy, having scored eight goals and provided five assists in only seven games for the U18s this season.His injury is a blow for both him and the club, as it interrupts his outstanding form in the youth ranks.
