Tottenham News: Malachi Fagan-Walcott to return from Dundee after latest injury woe
Speaking to the Evening Telegraph (h/t football.london), Dundee boss James McPake confirmed the news that youngster Malachi Fagan-Walcott is returning to Tottenham Hotspur from his loan spell due to injury issues.
The highly-rated youngster was handed his Tottenham debut by Jose Mourinho last year. He came on as a substitute against RB Leipzig in the 2nd leg of their UEFA Champions League tie in March.
But a serious knee injury last summer, and a subsequent surgery to operate it, saw him miss a large chunk of this season. After his recovery, he joined Dundee to play in Scotland’s 2nd-tier in the January transfer window.
That move, however, has not worked out for the 19-year-old. He made 2 starts and was an unused substitute in 4 games for the Scottish side.
Back to Spurs
And their manager now confirmed the news that Fagan-Walcott would return to Tottenham after encountering a hamstring injury in a game against Arbroath a week ago.
“Sadly Malachi is returning to Tottenham on Saturday. The scan came back and the injury was pretty severe. It’s a tendon problem that we hoped it wasn’t going to be. We thank Tottenham for giving us such a highly-rated player.”
The defender himself took to his social media account to thank the Scottish side and wish them good luck for the rest of the season.
The youngster has spent his entire footballing career on Tottenham’s books and would be hoping to break into the senior side in the near future despite this setback.
