Gio update

Giovani dos Santos will undergo an examination of his right ankle under anaesthesia on Tuesday to determine the severity of his high ankle sprain.

The Mexico international was seen by a specialist on Monday morning, who confirmed the diagnosis of the injury suffered in training last week.

Manager Harry Redknapp said: "Gio will go for an exploratory examination tomorrow but hopefully the outcome will be positive so he can return sooner rather than later.

"We all wish Gio well and a speedy recovery because I have not had the opportunity to work with him yet but everybody tells me he is a real talent and his record suggests that is the case."
