On-loan Norwich midfielder Dean Marney has ruptured his Achilles tendon.Dean Marney has returned to Tottenham after his loan spell at Norwich was interrupted by injury.
The midfielder ruptured his Achilles tendon during the first half of the 1-0 defeat by Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, and will now be sidelined for three months.
The news will come as a massive blow to under-fire Canaries manager Nigel Worthington, who has seen his squad decimated by injuries this season.
"It's very disappointing and frustrating both for the player and for myself," Worthington told Norwich's official website.
"Dean is an excellent young midfielder who is always willing to learn and improve. He will now go back to Spurs for treatment by their team and Norwich City will be there to provide any help and support required."
The 21-year-old Englishman joined the Carrow Road club on a season-long loan deal, but had stuggled to break into the first team before he was struck down.
