Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone will undergo surgery on his left knee and faces an anxious wait to see if he will be fit for England Under-21s' European Championship campaign this summer.
The 22-year-old was understood to be carrying the slight problem through the last few months and he will now go under the knife and miss the last part of Spurs' Barclays Premier League season.
"The operation will rule the midfielder out of our final fixture of the season at Liverpool on Sunday," read a statement from the club.
