Tottenham have suffered a blow with the news that Luka Modric will be out for two weeks after undergoing appendix surgery.
Modric underwent surgery to remove the inflamed appendix on Tuesday night.
The operation means Modric will face up to two weeks on the sidelines.
A club statement read: “Luka Modric has undergone surgery to remove his appendix.
“The Croatia midfielder was diagnosed with acute appendicitis after contacting our medical staff complaining of abdominal discomfort.
“He is likely to be sidelined for around two weeks.”
Modric will miss Wednesday’s clash at Blackburn as well as Bolton’s visit to White Hart Lane this weekend.
Spurs will be hoping Modric will be fit in time for the first leg of their last 16 Champions League tie with Milan on 15th February.
