Burnley boss Sean Dyche has revealed Aaron Lennon has undergone knee surgery which will keep the winger out for an unspecified time.
Lennon injured his knee as Burnley were beaten 1-0 by a late Christian Eriksen goal for Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday.
The winger, who played until the 93rd minute, saw a specialist on Monday and scans revealed the 31-year-old would need surgery on his knee.
Dyche told the club’s website: “It’s a tidying-up situation. He’s happy with it and the surgeon is happy with it.
“Hopefully it will be a straight-forward recovery, albeit some time.”

Lennon has played in all but one of Burnley’s Premier League games this season and was a permanent presence in Dyche’s side last season after arriving from Everton in January.
Robbie Brady also sustained a knock against Spurs but Dyche is “hopeful” the winger will be okay to return to north London on Saturday to face Arsenal.
