Injury News: Tottenham youngster Alfie Whiteman ruled out after surgery

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Alfie Whiteman has been ruled out of action until May after he underwent surgery on his knee, the club confirmed the news on the official website.

Whiteman, 22, has been with Tottenham Hotspur since his youth days. Having risen through the academy ranks, the goalkeeper went on to feature ten times for the club’s Under-18s before being pushed up to the reserve side. The Englishman has 30 appearances for the Under-23s, in which he has kept two clean sheets. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Whiteman made his first-team debut for Tottenham this season in the UEFA Europa League Group Stage game against Ludogorets. The 22-year-old came on to replace Joe Hart with less than ten minutes left as Tottenham were cruising towards a win.

Alfie Whiteman is out injured till May

He has been named on the bench for a few other matches in the Europa League, while he has featured thrice for the reserves in the Premier League 2 in 2020/21.

However, the youngster’s season could potentially be over now as Tottenham have confirmed that he had to undergo surgery on his left knee after having torn a meniscus.

“Goalkeeper Alfie Whiteman has undergone surgery to his left knee after tearing his meniscus. Alfie will now undergo a period of recovery and rehabilitation with a view to returning to training in May.”

Even though there was little chance that Whiteman would have featured for the first team between now and the season, being in and around the senior side and training alongside them can be quite the learning experience for a youngster.

His injury means, he will now be deprived of that at least until May. We wish Alfie a speedy recovery!
