Luton trio Tom Lockyer, Joe Morrell and Rhys Norrington-Davies are waiting to see whether they have earned call-ups for the Wales squad after the Football Association of Wales (FAW) cancelled a press conference planned for today due to the arrest of manager Ryan Giggs.

The 46-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting his girlfriend, several newspapers have reported, an allegation the former Manchester United winger has denied.

Greater Manchester Police said a man, 46, had been arrested on suspicion of section 47 assault and section 39 common assault and bailed pending further inquiries, as a statement released by the FA said it was "aware of an alleged incident involving the men's national team manager Ryan Giggs."

A statement released on behalf of Giggs said: "He is co-operating with the police and will continue to assist them with their ongoing investigation."

Wales are due to take on USA in a friendly next Wednesday, with Nations League games against Ireland and Finland over the weekend too.

Lockyer has won 12 caps for his country, with Morrell on nine, while Norrington-Davies, who is an injury doubt, made his debut during the recent 1-0 Nations League win against Bulgaria.
