Lamela needs hip surgery, out for season
LONDON: Tottenham forward Erik Lamela will undergo hip surgery tomorrow and has been ruled out for the rest of the Premier League season.
The Argentina international has been out with the injury since November.
Tottenham said on Wednesday that the 25-year-old Lamela requires an operation, despite a lengthy period of rehabilitation, because “he has been unable to reach the stage required to make a full return to training.”
Lamela joined Spurs from Roma in 2013 and scored 13 goals last season. AP
