Dos Santos set to go under the knife

November 10, 2008

Tottenham's Mexico international Giovani dos Santos is set to undergo an exploratory operation on his right ankle on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old suffered the injury in training last week and manager Harry Redknapp told the club's website "Gio will go for an exploratory examination tomorrow but hopefully the outcome will be positive so he can return sooner rather than later.

"We all wish Gio well and a speedy recovery because I have not had the opportunity to work with him yet. Everybody tells me he is a real talent and his record suggests that is the case."
