Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed their defender Ben Davies will miss the remaining four matches of this season after undergoing a surgery following a shoulder dislocation.
The 22-year-old picked up an injury during the north London club's 2-2 draw against Southampton at St James' Park on 25 April. He slipped awkwardly while chasing Saido Mane in his own box in the 76th minute.
Mauricio Pochettino was hopeful the left-back could be fit for the remaining fixtures as Tottenham are set to fight with Liverpool to finish the season in top four. However, the White Hart Lane outfit have confirmed Davies will be out of action for the remainder of this season.
"Ben Davies has today (Wednesday) undergone surgery after dislocating his shoulder in Saturday's draw at Southampton. The Wales international will miss the remainder of the campaign," a statement read on Tottenham's official website.
Davies joined Pochettino's side from Swansea City in the summer of 2014. He has featured in 14 league games this season and has managed one assist against his former club as Tottenham managed a 2-1 win last December.
Tottenham are sixth in the table with 58 points from 34 games, level on points with fifth place Liverpool and seven points behind fourth place Manchester United. They host Manchester City in the upcoming league clash and play the final match of the season against Everton at Goodison Park.
With Davies set to be out of action for the rest of the season, Danny Rose could fill in the void left by the Wales international's absence.
Meanwhile, Tottenham star Harry Kane has expressed his delight at being named the PFA Young Player of the Year. He finished second in the PFA Player of the Year as it was won by Chelsea winger Eden Hazard.
"It feels amazing. It's an honour and as a Premier League player, it doesn't get too much bigger than being named PFA Young Player of the Year," Kane told the club's official website.
"It's a special moment and something I won't forget. It's a proud moment for myself and my family. To be selected by fellow professionals makes it all the more special. It shows you are doing something right and hopefully this will be the first of many."
