Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid host Osasuna this weekend – see all the best match betting (Sat 7pm SS4)

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe will be out for up to three months after undergoing surgery on torn ankle ligaments.

Defoe suffered the injury in England’s Euro 2012 qualifying win against Switzerland on Tuesday, and after visiting a specialist on Thursday, the 27-year-old was left with no option but to have surgery.

A statement on Spurs’ website Friday read: “Following a review by an ankle specialist, Jermain Defoe underwent surgery to repair torn ligaments in his right ankle yesterday evening.

“The striker was forced off with the injury during England’s European Championship qualifier in Switzerland on Tuesday and has been ruled out of action for around three months.”

Defoe is likely to miss all of his club’s Champions League group matches against Inter, Werder Bremen and FC Twente, a number of Premier League games, plus two England internationals against Montenegro and France.
