Spurs are currently tussling with Unai Emery’s Aston Villa for fourth and a spot in next season’s Champions League group stage pot.

The defender underwent surgery late last month and is now ruled out for the remainder of the campaign, in what can only be described as an extremely unfortunate situation and one of real frustration for Sessegnon.
