Tottenham midfielder Luke Amos has been ruled out for the season with a serious knee injury.
The academy prospect has been pushing for a first-team place since impressing in pre-season and came on as an 88nd-minute substitute for Eric Dier in the 2-1 win at Newcastle on the opening day of the Premier League campaign.
Amos signed a new contract with Spurs last month but he ruptured an anterior cruciate knee ligament playing for Spurs U23s against Blackburn last week and now requires surgery.
The 21-year-old has had previous loan spells at Southend and Stevenage and scored two goals in 16 matches last season for the Hertfordshire side.
Amos himself tweeted: "Devastated but thank you everyone for your messages of support."
