This was confirmed by manager Julian Nagelsmann during his pre-match media engagement on Friday afternoon.

Davies, 21, has not played for the club since he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month.

The Canadian international completed routine medical checks at the club after recovering from the virus, which highlighted signs of mild myocarditis.

Davies is now expected to miss “weeks” of training as his condition is monitored.

The news comes just two weeks before Canada play three vitally important FIFA World Cup qualification matches.

Nagelsmann said on Friday: “(On Thursday), during our follow-up examination that we do with every player that has had COVID-19, we detected signs of mild myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle.

“He has stopped training for now, so he won’t be available to us for the next weeks.

“This myocarditis isn’t too dramatic based on the ultrasound, but more simply signs of an inflammation. Nevertheless, it needs to heal and that will no doubt take some time.”

Nine Bayern Munich players tested positive for COVID-19 at the start of January after time away following the winter break in Germany.

Despite that, they still to play out Friday’s match against Monchengladbach losing 2-1 in Bavaria.

The Bundesliga Champions will face FC Cologne this weekend.
