Tottenham star Eric Dier was rushed to hospital in acute pain within hours of Tottenham’s win against Burnley and underwent surgery to remove his appendix which will rule him out until the New Year.
A club statement on Sunday read: “Eric Dier has undergone surgery to remove his appendix.
“The England international midfielder was diagnosed with appendicitis after contacting our medical staff due to acute Abdominal pain. He received immediate treatment to assess and then remove the appendix. He will now undergo a period of recovery before commencing rehabilitation and it is expected he will return to training with the squad in January. Along with our medical staff, we wish to thank the NHS for their excellent treatment of Eric.”
