Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Jan Vertonghen has suffered medial ligament damage, an injury that could rule him out for up to three months.
The 28-year-old was forced off in the second half of Spurs' 3-1 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday after a collision with Connor Wickham.
Scans have now revealed "damage to his medial collateral ligament in his knee" that typically comes with a recovery time of at least two months.
In a statement, Spurs said: "Our medical staff will continue to monitor his progress during his rehabilitation to determine when he will be ready to return to training."
The Belgian has been an ever-present for Spurs in the league this season as they continue their title push.
