Northern Ireland full-back Ian Nolan is seeking damages over the tackle which broke his leg three years ago.

Nolan, currently playing for Premiership strugglers Bradford City, is suing Tottenham Hotspur and their former defender Justin Edinburgh.

Nolan was with Sheffield Wednesday when the incident happened in February 1998.

Both the tibia and fibia in his left leg were broken and Nolan was out of football for 18 months.

He returned to the Sheffield Wednesday side in August 1999 and made 37 appearances for the Owls during the 1999/2000 season.

Nolan and his solicitor have retained the barrister who represented former Sheffield Wednesday striker Gordon Watson in a similar case.
