Son Heung-min is facing a spell on the sidelines after injuring his foot in Tottenham’s defeat of Manchester City.

The 23-year-old has settled impressively at White Hart Lane after making the £22million move from Bayer Leverkusen last month.

The South Korea forward has netted three goals in five Spurs appearances to date and would have had another was it not for the offside flag in the 4-1 Barclays Premier League win against City on Saturday.

‘Our medical staff will monitor his progress during his rehabilitation in order to determine when he will be fit to return to training.’
