Harry hopes specialist sorts Lennon

BY foxsports • February 25, 2010

Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon is to see a specialist in Europe on Thursday as he looks to resolve his long-term groin injury.

Lennon has been out of action since December after picking up the injury in the 2-0 win over West Ham.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp was hoping to have the England international back in action last month, but Lennon faces a further spell on the sidelines after suffering a setback in training earlier this week.

Redknapp is unsure when the 22-year-old will be able to return and he admitted the ongoing problem was a major blow for the player and club.

"He is seeing a specialist on Thursday," said Redknapp, speaking after Tottenham's 4-0 FA Cup replay win over Bolton on Wednesday. "We just hope we get some good news from Aaron.

"He is going to see somebody abroad and hopefully we can get somebody who can get to the bottom of the problem for him because he is desperate to play.

"It's a shame for him and it's a shame for us. We all miss him, he is a fantastic player."
