Huddlestone set for ankle operation

Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone is set to undergo ankle surgery, Spurs manager Harry Redknapp revealed on Wednesday.

Huddlestone has not featured for the club since a 5-1 defeat to Manchester City on August 28. But after already having surgery on the ankle, Redknapp said Huddlestone is now expected to spend a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The 24-year-old scored two goals in 14 appearances for Spurs last season.
