Spurs defender Bongani Khumalo has returned to White Hart Lane after breaking a bone in his foot.

The South African international recently moved to Deepdale on loan, but after impressing in his opening outings for Preston was forced off in the weekend defeat to Millwall at the New Den.

Scans have revealed the Tottenham Hotspur centre back suffered a broken bone in his foot, and didn't feature against Cardiff on Monday as the Whites were relegated from the Npower Championship.

It's thought that a return from Spurs is unlikely, given Preston's new lowly status in the third tier of English football.


Khumalo signed at White Hart Lane in January after a successful trial period with Spurs back in October, with Harry Redknapp spending £1.5 million to bring the player to England from Supersport United.

Yet to make his Tottenham Hotspur debut, the 24-year-old is seen as a potential star of the future and already has 22 caps for his country.
