Bolasie faces up to a year out with an injury and was speaking to TalkSport this afternoon about the youngster’s breakthrough into the first team.
The former Crystal Palace man said that Davies is showing much more on the pitch in the Premier League than he had shown against Bolasie in training sessions at Finch Farm.
He said, “Obviously Ive played with him in training, and he has been in and around the first team since I stepped in the door.
“It’s good to see he’s eventually got his chance and he’s taken it. It looks like he is ready, he’s come on a lot more than I thought he would have to be honest with you.
“In training it is different, you don’t see tackles flying like that and in the game it’s a totally different story and I’m really impressed with Tom.”
