Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone says he will have more surgery on his injured right ankle on Friday, ruling him out for the rest of the season.

Huddlestone says on Twitter that ''my season is over b4 its even started, operation Friday!! Main objective is to make sure I'm 100 (percent) for pre season.''

The 25-year-old Huddlestone has played in only four matches for Tottenham this season.

Tottenham says ''the midfielder has progressed well since his initial surgery with the specialist determining that the anticipated reconstruction of a lateral ankle ligament is the next step towards the England international making a return to full fitness.''
