Tottenham have confirmed midfielder Alex Pritchard will be sidelined for the rest of the year after undergoing surgery.

Pritchard, who has made two first-team appearances, originally sustained an injury to his right ankle while playing for England's U21s against Sweden at the European Championships in June.

The 22 year-old has now undergone corrective surgery and is expected to be out for at least three months.

Pritchard, who joined the Spurs academy from West Ham as an eight-year-old and signed his first youth contract at 16, made his first team-debut as an 18-year-old in 2011.
