Tottenham will have to wait some time for Rodrigo Bentancur to return to action this season.
Tottenham are aiming for the Uruguayan to return in November after he last played in February, when he ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.
On the injury, Ange Postecoglou “He’s definitely keen. And it’ll be great to get him back because his contribution when he first came to the club was outstanding. In many respects he’ll be like another new signing for us, which is great, but we won’t rush it.
“It’s obviously a significant injury so probably looking around that timescale.”
Another midfield issue, Argentina have left Giovani Lo Celso out of their squad after he suffered a leg muscle injury in the recent League Cup loss at Fulham. The midfielder’s return for the Premier League visit of Sheffield United after the international break is also in doubt.
Bryan Gil had surgery on a groin issue at the start of August, leaving him unavailable for the start of the season.
He is set to miss a couple of months, meaning he could return towards the end of October or early November.
