Tottenham provide official Dele Alli fitness update, as player confirms via Twitter he's at the club

MK Dons

Dele Alli is with Tottenham as he recovers from injury.

MK Dons star Dele Alli's injury is bad news for fans of the club. The midfielder was substituted an hour into their win at Colchester last week.

Alli had scored what would prove to be the winning goal in the 1-0 win, his 14th strike of the season, the highest of any midfielder in League One.

It came at a cost however, with the midfielder missing their clash with Peterborough at the weekend, and the teenager will miss more time.

Alli is now back with Tottenham Hotspur, who signed him on transfer deadline day before loaning him back to Karl Robinson's side.

Spurs said in a report on their official website on Monday: "Dele Alli is expected to be out of action for up to six weeks after suffering an ankle injury during MK Dons’ win at Colchester United on Tuesday night.

"The England Under-19 midfielder is currently back at Hotspur Way for treatment."

Alli is remaining positive however, and said via Twitter that he aims to rejoin the Dons to aid their promotion push before the season is over.

Alli is scheduled to officially join up with Spurs in the summer, and will be involved in Mauricio Pochettino's pre-season plans.
