Davison was one of seven new Tottenham signings made this summer as the club transitioned from a semi-professional to full professional club for their first season in the Women’s Super League. The 32 year old former Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool player joined from Reading this past season. Davison hadn’t yet taken the pitch for Spurs in a competitive match this season, but her injury combined with the season-ending injury to Jessica Naz will leave Spurs a little thin up top, at least in depth.
The club’s statement read that she will be monitored by Tottenham physios until she is able to begin the process of rehabilitation.
