Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Moore has told the Doncaster Free Press that Kazaiah Sterling has returned to Tottenham Hotspur, as they look to get to the bottom of his injury.

Sterling made a bright start at Doncaster, but the Spurs youngster has been unable to feature in recent weeks.

An injury which was initially diagnosed as a dead leg has proved very problematic, and kept him sidelined for five weeks.


Sterling is now back at Tottenham as he receives treatment, as their facilities are better than Doncaster’s.

And Moore is excited to have Sterling available again soon, as he feels that Rovers will be a much better team which the Spurs winger involved.

“We’re working together with Spurs,” Moore revealed.

“Since he got the injury he’s been away and we’ve nurtured him back, we’ve given him the treatment, he’s returned back to his parent club and he’s had a couple of scans.

“If it meant him going back to Spurs because it speeds up the recovery process and because of the man power they’ve got there and the equipment then great stuff.

“But he’s nearly there. We’ve just got to make sure that we take every precaution and make sure when he comes back he stays back.

“He’s such an electrifying player that the last thing we want is for him to explode into a burst of speed and for something untoward to happen.

“It’s been a really difficult one because when you think what we could do with his ability it would be wonderful.”

Sterling has been loaned out by Tottenham over the past two seasons, with the winger becoming familiar with League One football now.

The youngster was temporarily at Sunderland last term before being relocated to Doncaster in the summer.

Sterling had made four appearances for Doncaster before injury struck, and he found the back of the net on one occasion.

In Sterling’s absence Doncaster have still performed well, and currently sit in 10th place in the League One table, with games in hand over most of their rivals.
