Enoch Andoh, a reported Tottenham Hotspur transfer target, is out for the rest of the season with knee ligament damage

The Port Vale attacker suffered the injury against Colchester earlier in the month.

Last month it was reported that Tottenham Hotspur were be considering a move for Enoch Andoh in the January transfer window, in what would have been a shock switch for the 22-year-old.

It was reported by The Sunday People, as cited by the Daily Star, that Tottenham were prepared to make a £2.5 million move for the player in the winter.

Andoh currently plays in League One with Port Vale and his signature would certainly have caused a stir.

The Ghanaian is a former FC Porto youngster who joined up with Port Vale last November – following a release from Cypriot club AEL Limassol.

He did not feature for the club at all last season, but after getting his match fitness up to scratch in pre-season he has become one of the better players during the early stages of the League One campaign.

It looked like a great story, as Tottenham considered a gamble on a talented attacking midfielder with the ability to go on and become a star.

Unfortunately that star has been, temporarily at least, extinguished. The Tottenham Hotspur target has ruptured knee ligaments and will miss the rest of the season with Port Vale - putting any potential Spurs move well and truly in the bin for now.

Hopefully he will recover and come back stronger but as for a Tottenham move, that now seems a long way off.
