Defender Norrington-Davies and Davies, the former Stoke City goalkeeper, could both feature when Wales face the Czech Republic in a friendly next week before returning to United.

Their meeting has been postponed following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. FIFA, the world governing body, are hopeful it can be rescheduled for June, with the winner travelling to the Welsh capital later that month.
