Replace the tyre now - don't wait a few months for the sake of £60. The tyre is your only contact with the road! Do not compromise safety by not replacing the tyre. Lifes are at risk here.
Also, as with a slow puncture, water will gradually penetrate the rip and start to " dissolve" the glues that hold the various parts of the tyre strengthening wires together - result - large puncture, blow out or delamination - all serious - IMHO.
