Steven Davis has given Saints a boost by choosing to stay in Southampton to help increase his fitness levels.

The 33-year-old midfielder had been expected to link up with Northern Ireland for their friendly international clash against North Korea on Saturday but with Davis being forced to miss our last five matches because of a hamstring problem, he decided against joining up with the squad in Belfast.

Michael O’Neill, Northern Ireland’s National Coach has confirmed that he will not feature.

Sky Sports have him saying.

‘It’s been a wee bit tricky. Davo is out. We have to be careful with the players given the time of year it is and the nature of the game.’

The news will be music to the ears of Saints fans as it means the club captain will now be focused on making a comeback as soon as possible. He should be ready for the important game against West Ham when the international break is over as he was back in training earlier this week.

This makes great reading for us Saints fans.

  • With bot Steve and Charlie likely to be back our hopes are building for a good end to the season.

  • Not a problem KRAZYB – always happy to take original submissions mate, saves me some time! All I’d ask mate is when you use quotes can you give me the url to the article you’ve took them from as well as I need to attribute a source due to daft and stupid ideas from others. The Daily Mail and others can copy quotes from other media outlets but being a fan this site isn’t allowed to!

    I think a good choice by Davis withdrawing, he can work back to fitness in a better way and saves the travel element as well.

  • Appreciated! Can also get me on southampton@vitalfootball.co.uk if needed.

    Yup, I know info transfers between clubs and national sides is good thesedays, but our medical staff know him better so it reduces risk and hopefully he can be back and performing for us this season and then NI benefit down the line.

  • Yup, given countries have the power the fact he was so easily open to it is a credit to him, I agree,
