Davies, 28, is back in the Barclays Premier League after Steve Bruce paid Birmingham £2.25million for his services in the summer and has been one of the newcomers' standout performers so far.
But although England are less well off at centre-half than they were before John Terry and Rio Ferdinand retired from duty, Davies does not expect Hodgson to be keeping tabs on his progress.
Indeed, he insists his only realistic chance of a first international call-up since he sat on the bench for a 2008 friendly against Germany is if Hodgson decides to check in on Tom Huddlestone or Jake Livermore.
"I don't really think about England. I think you could pick the list of defenders before the squad has gone up, regardless of whether they're playing for their clubs," he said.
"I'd love to play for my country, but being in a Hull City shirt I think that would be very difficult.
"I couldn't tell you what the manager is thinking but the only chance for me is if the manager came to watch Jake and Tom - they've played for this manager - then I might surprise him.
"I don't think he'll be coming to watch me. When I was in the squad under Fabio Capello I'm sure he didn't come (to Aston Villa) to watch me. He was probably coming to watch Ashley Young and Gabby Agbonlahor.
"I'm just hoping Tom ups his game so the England manager comes to watch him and then I can turn his head!"
