Tottenham defender Ben Davies has posted an Instagram message saying that he’s “gutted” to miss out on Wales’ World Cup qualifier against Serbia on Saturday, but is “focusing on his recovery”.

Davies, 23, picked up the injury during Tottenham’s defeat to Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League and subsequently missed the north London derby with Arsenal.

At the Football Association of Wales awards on Tuesday night, reported by Sky Sports, Davies revealed he would be out for two weeks.

“It’s not too good at the moment,” Davies said. “I’ve just got to get ready.

“It will be a good couple of weeks after this one to get back fit, so I’ve just got to work hard.”

He followed that up this morning with a photo from the awards on his Instagram account, where he said he was “focusing on his recovery.”

Great night at the @fawales awards, gutted to miss out this weekend but am focusing on my recovery! 👊

Ben Davies has been a solid stand-in for first-choice left-back Danny Rose this season.

He’s made four appearances in the Premier League, helping his side to three wins and a draw as Spurs remain unbeaten domestically.

He’s also completed 90 minutes in three Champions League games, but these included two defeats against Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen.

In other Tottenham team news, Paul Gascoigne has said that this Tottenham duo should be axed from the Tottenham side.
