Ex-Fulham, Tottenham and Portsmouth midfielder Sean Davis has called time on his career due to a persistent knee injury.

The 33-year-old started his career at Craven Cottage, where he spent eight years as a professional before moving to London rivals Spurs.

He suffered two serious knee injuries in the latter stages of his career while at Bolton and has now been forced to hang up his boots.

“I’ve made the decision to retire from football but it’s been something I’ve had time to think about and reflect on because of the amount of time I’ve been injured,” he told Sky Sports.

“For three years I’ve been out.

“I’ve tried coming back and it’s not been quite right, that’s something that is hard to take.”
