Benjamin Davis penned a two-year contract at Fulham in July with the Under-18s and U-23s after just one year of playing with Fulham, he was not granted permission to miss National Service.
Singapore’s Ministry of Defence declared: ‘Mr. Benjamin Davis is a national service defaulter. He failed to report for national service as required. He is also staying overseas without a valid Exit Permit.’
All men in Singapore over the age of 18 must complete two years of National Service unless they are handed an exemption or risk three years in jail.
Exemptions are usually only handed to Olympians, with regular sportsmen not considered for them.
Davis, 18, a former student at the Singapore Sports School, moved to London in 2016 to join English Premier League (EPL) club Fulham’s academy, where he is registered as an English national.
He was born in Thailand to an English father and a Thai mother.
But Ben’s path to making a famous football club’s first team will still be fraught with uncertainty.
