Ben Davies has been ruled out for the remainder of the season for Tottenham and is a doubt for Wales’ European Championships campaign.
Davies has been missing since the middle of March owing to a calf issue, however the extent of his injury has been something of an unknown quantity.
The former Swansea City left back is a crucial cog in the wheel for Wales and, if fit, will no doubt be central for his country this summer.
However, Spurs boss Ryan Mason on Friday cast doubt over the player’s potential involvement in the Euros, stating it is “too early” to predict whether he will be fit and firing for the summer showpiece.
“It is too early to make a decision on the Euros,” Mason said.
“Ben is the only one who hasn’t trained. I will be surprised if he is contention for any of our three remaining fixtures, but everyone else has trained this week.
“I am not sure [on the Euros], Ben was out on the training pitch today doing some individual work.
“Hopefully he will progress very nicely over the next few days and the next week.
“It’s too early to make a decision on the Euros, but I am sure Ben feels confident within that.
“We just know because he has been out for such a long time its not very realistic to expect or think he will return to training play a game for this football club in the next 10 days.”
Another Spurs player who will be crucial to Wales’ chances this summer, aside from Gareth Bale of course, will be Joe Rodon.
Rodon was enjoying a steadily spell in the side under Jose Mourinho, but since the Portuguese left the north London club last month he has not featured. He has, in fact, been omitted from all three squads since Mason took charge.
And while Mason praised the centre back for maintaining his standards in training, the manager offered little to suggest he has forced his way back into contention for Sunday’s clash with Wolves.
“Joe was unfortunate in terms of timing,” Mason added. “He was cup-tied for the cup final so the first game I felt it was probably right to have the group consistent for what it was going to be in the next game.
“He’s trained well, done well. All the 21 outfield players have competed in training and it’s made it difficult to pick a team and a squad.
“But I’ve been happy with everyone, I think the defence and team has done well. So it’s difficult. But when you play at a club like this, there’s always going to be disappointed players.
“The most important thing for me is he’s remained professional, he’s worked hard, he’s trained well and he’s been good around the club so that’s a massive tick from me.”
