Ben Davies will reportedly agree a new Tottenham deal soon – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are thrilled with the speculation.
The Daily Mail explains that the Wales international is close to signing a long-term contract to extend his stay with Spurs.
He is currently under contract with the North London club until 2021, but may commit to a fresh five-year deal.
The report adds that Danny Rose is available to leave Spurs this summer, which could open the door for Ben Davies to become the club’s first-choice left-back.
Davies played 40 times across all competitions during the last campaign, but often rotated with Rose and was left on the bench for some crucial moments.
The full-back was used sparingly during the club’s run to the Champions League final before losing to Liverpool, but is extremely consistent with his performances.
His preferred role is as an attack-minded left-back, but has shown he’s comfortable at centre-back too.
A selection of Spurs fans on social media believe that Davies does deserve a new deal and that he’s an important part of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.
He’s been a reliable option in the team’s backline since joining from Swansea City in 2014 and may be around for a while longer still.
Here are some Spurs fans commenting on Davies potentially penning a contract:
Perfect example of a professional, knows he’s the backup left back but is great to fill when Danny needs a rest/injured etc and he’s versatile too play lb or cb.

A good back up to have and a versatile defender.

He’s a good player. Either at LB or CB, I’m very happy with that

This is good

Good. Versatile player, professional and credit that he soldiered through an injury last season.

Vastly underrated member of the squad. Versatile and never gives less than 100% I suspect he’d do a decent job in centre midfield too if asked

Well deserved 👍

Hope it will happen. he has been very good in the time that he is here and he was a key player in our Champions league journey this year. he can play both CB and LB and I admire him a lot.
