Davis Injured

by Mark Rowan @Everton

Everton transfer target Sean Davis suffered a twisted knee during Fulham's pre-season friendly against Austrian outfit ASK Voitsberg on Wednesday.

Davis came on after the interval, but was soon substituted following a clash with an opponent.

A scan on the 23-year-old's knee will be required, although Fulham are hoping that the problem is not too serious.

"He went in for a sliding tackle and twisted his knee," said the Cottagers' assistant manager Steve Kean.

"The pitch was a bit greasy after the rain we had earlier and as a result the surface was playing very fast. As Sean went in for a sliding tackle, their player collided with his leading leg and jarred his knee.

"He stood up, was able to put weight on it and jog around but it was too painful to continue so we took him off as a precaution. Hopefully no serious damage has been done."

Moyes has made Davis his number one priority this summer and had an undisclosed bid rejected out of hand by Fulham officials, who want a fee of £7m for the former England U-21 international.
