Tottenham defenders William Gallas and Ledley King have reportedly sustained injuries in training on Friday, with the former set to spend at least three weeks on the sidelines.
This comes at a bad time for Spurs as they have a difficult set of fixtures ahead, with a Champions League clash against Twente followed by a Premier League encounter against Aston Villa.
Now the Daily Mail reports that the Frenchman has been ruled out of action for at least a three-week period, meaning he could be out for longer than the aforementioned timeline.
King, whose injury is thought to have taken place during the same training session, is one more among a long line of defenders who are out.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp now has a selection headache of the wrong sort, as Michael Dawson is out of action owing to knee and ankle injuries, while Younes Kaboul is still nursing a hamstring injury.
