Malachi Fagan-Walcott has stepped up his recovery from injury at Tottenham Hotspur after a loan spell at Dundee last season.

Dee manager James McPake signed the exciting Tottenham Hotspur talent on loan for the second half of the 2020/21 Scottish Championship season. The teenager suffered a season-ending hamstring tear in March, an injury which McPake labeled ‘severe.’

He has stepped up his recovery with Tottenham Hotspur, provided a pre-season chance by new head coach Nuno Espírito Santo. Fagan-Walcott appeared as a substitute in the weekend’s pre-season friendly match with Leyton Orient. Jose Mourinho handed Fagan-Walcott his Spurs debut last year in the Champions League against RB Leipzig.

McPake said of the defender after his departure from Dundee: “Malachi unfortunately will go back to Tottenham Hotspur. His scan came back pretty bad and we are devastated for the boy, taking football out of it. But he’s going to miss a large part of it.

“Our thanks go to Tottenham for allowing him to come up. It’s a hamstring/tendon issue. It’s a pretty severe tear and it’s a season-ending one for him, which is a shame as he’s just come back from a serious knee injury. Our best wishes go to him.

“He’s been a great representation of the football club he’s came from. In the games he has played, he has handled himself very well and it was a chance for him to get a run of games. That game against Arbroath he picked up the injury. He’ll be in good hands and he will get the best of treatment, Tottenham want him back down there to do his rehab.”
