Defoe injury blow for Spurs

Tottenham have suffered a fresh injury blow with news that Jermaine Defoe has picked up an ankle problem.

Defoe suffered the injury while training with Spurs in Dubai with the club embarking on a five-day warm-weather training camp before their Premier League clash with Wolves on Sunday.

Defoe will be hoping the injury is not a recurrence of the ankle ligament damage he suffered during England’s 3-1 win over Switzerland in September which kept him out of action for eight weeks.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has seen his squad decimated with injuries this season and this will only add to his woes as Spurs are already missing several key players.

“Defoe has an injury again. He’s had a problem with his ankle before and it didn’t feel too good,” Redknapp said in Dubai-based newspaper The National.

“We’re trying to finish in the top four and it’s so close. But we’ve got so many players injured, people forget.”

“We’ve got Tom Huddlestone, Younes Kaboul, Ledley King, (Jonathan) Woodgate, (Gareth) Bale, (Rafael) Van der Vaart.”

“If you could pick a team of injured players it would be a fantastic team,” he added.
