Parker set for six weeks on sidelines

Scott Parker is facing six weeks on the sidelines, following confirmation the Tottenham midfielder will undergo surgery next week.

Parker has been struggling with a problem in his Achilles since the end of last season. He was able to battle through Euro 2012 for England, but he returned to pre-season with Spurs still in discomfort.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas said last week that Parker would visit his doctor for a thorough assessment, with the club hopeful but not positive that he might not require surgery.

But those hopes have been dashed, with Parker set to go under the knife in the middle of next week.

A six-week recovery period has been forecasted, meaning Parker will miss Spurs' Premier League opener with Newcastle on August 18 and in all probability England's World Cup qualifiers with Moldova and Ukraine on September 7 and 11 respectively.
