Birmingham midfielder David Davis is to have surgery after fracturing his left ankle in training.

The 27-year-old has made 167 appearances since joining the club from Wolves in August 2014.

"The misfortune is naturally major blow for Davis, who was looking in excellent shape in pre-season," said a statement on the Blues website.

"[After surgery], the club will have a clearer picture of his rehabilitation process and will update in due course."
