Everton transfer target Sean Davis is set to miss the opening
three matches of the new Premiership campaign.
Davis has been ruled out of action for up to six weeks following
a scan on a knee injury he picked up in Austria last week.
The midfielder will therefore miss the games against
Middlesbrough, Everton and Newcastle, though he could be out for
Fulham physio Jason Palmer said: "Sean has a grade two
injury to the medial ligament of his right knee. He's just had
a scan, which confirmed our diagnosis.
"He's going to have a couple of day's rest before
joining us in Scotland, where we will continue with further
treatment. If all goes well, we're looking at a recovery time
of five to six weeks."
Blues Boss David lodged an undisclosed bid for the England
under-21 international earlier this month but Fulham officials
laughed it off, insisting they wouldn't let him leave for less
than £7 million.
