FULHAM starlet Ben Davis could face prison after missing national service in his native Singapore.
The 18-year-old has been at Craven Cottage since July and the Singapore government denied his application to defer the service, according to BBC Sport.

All men over 18 are obliged to serve in the armed forces, police or civil defence and punishments include up to four months behind bars.
The decision could have a big effect on Davis' international career going forward, if he fails to report for national service, while it would also disrupt his development with Fulham.
He became the first Singaporian player to sign for a Premier League club when he arrived in West London last summer, but has yet to make his debut.
South Korea's Heung-min Son faced a similar problem before his country won the Asian Games gold medal last September.
