Tottenham have been dealt a blow, with reports claiming that Kyle Walker has undergone lower abdominal surgery.

The England international, capped 10 times, has yet to feature this season and a statement on the club's official site confirmed that after further medical assessment by specialists, it was decided that the 24-year-old should go under the knife.

Recurring issue

Walker missed out on the end of last season and the subsequent World Cup due to the injury and it was hoped that with rest and recuperation the problem would cure itself.

Walker played a part in Tottenham's pre-season tour of North America, starting the games against Seattle Sounders and Toronto FC but was then put back on the injured list.

“Kyle is good some days. On other days he has a bad feeling,” Spurs’ manager Mauricio Pochettino said last month.

“We believe he may recover soon but we need to be calm with him because it is an injury that he has had for five months.”

With Eric Dier making an impressive start to his Spurs career, Walker's absence has slipped under the radar.

However, the new signing from Sporting Lisbon gave away a soft penalty against Liverpool on Sunday and his more experienced countryman may not have been so susceptible to error.
