Tottenham Hotspur left-back Ben Davies has decided to put off his summer holidays to work hard and get back to full fitness ahead of the start of pre-season.

The Wales international suffered a dislocated shoulder during Tottenham's match against Southampton back in April.

Davies has since been out of action and will miss his country's all-important Euro 2016 qualifier against Belgium tomorrow.

While disappointed at missing out on the game, the youngster feels that it will be more important for him now to get back to the training ground and try to regain match fitness as soon as possible for Spurs.

The young left-back also took time to add that he might have missed more matches for the Lilywhites if the injury had happened earlier. Now he is focused on working on his recovery.


"It’s frustrating to miss what is probably the biggest qualifying match for Wales, our biggest game in a long, long time, but it’s part and parcel of football", Davies told his club's official website.

"I could have missed a lot of club football as well if the injury was slightly earlier, but hopefully I won’t miss too much football now.

"I’ll be in over the summer, work hard to get fit and that will give me a head start in pre-season.

"I’ve no trips away booked. I’m sure I’ll get a couple of days here or there but I’ve nothing more planned as my focus is to get fit over the summer. It’s time to do my job, and that’s to get fit.

"I’ve set myself targets to get stronger and fitter and hopefully by pre-season I’ll be back involved in everything. Pre-season will be a fresh start for everyone."

Davies has managed a total of 29 appearances for Mauricio Pochettino's side this season, having provided his team-mates with two assists.
