Modric boost for Spurs

Published Add your comment

Luka Modric will travel with the rest of the Tottenham squad for Tuesday's Champions League game at Werder Bremen after x-rays on his left leg came back clear.

The 25-year-old Croatia playmaker left The Hawthorns on crutches on Saturday after suffering an injury in a challenge with defender Gonzalo Jara during the 1-1 draw against West Brom. Spurs boss Harry Redknapp had feared Modric would face a lengthy spell on the sidelines but the club on Sunday received good news as he was cleared to make the trip to Germany.

"Luka Modric will travel with the squad for our opening Champions League group match at Werder Bremen on Tuesday after x-rays of his left fibula came back clear," read a club statement.

"The Croatia international midfielder was forced off with the injury in the first half of Saturday's draw at West Brom and will continue to be monitored prior to being made available for selection on Tuesday."
