Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Jan Vertonghen will be out until December with a hamstring injury.

Vertonghen, 31, picked up the injury during the 2-0 win away at Huddersfield Town on September 29.

The club have released a statement saying that his initial reaction to the rehabilitation has been good.

The centre-back is now expected to return to training by December.

The injury leaves Spurs with Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez as their first choice centre-backs, with Juan Foyth as back-up.

Ben Davies and Eric Dier can also both cover in that position.
