Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker faces a spell on the sidelines

Tottenham have confirmed that midfielder Scott Parker has undergone surgery to his right Achilles and will be out until mid-September.

The club have revealed that the 31-year-old will return to training after the international break and will miss England's friendly against Italy as well as the World Cup qualifiers with Moldova on September 7 and Ukraine four days later.

Parker missed Tottenham's final four Premier League matches with an Achilles injury but still played for his country at last summer's European Championship.
