The name of Ben Davies had been touted as a possible left back signing right at the beginning of June but with the transfer window set to open, the Mirror claim that an £8m deal is set to go through. At 21, Davies has been with Swansea City for his entire professional career and his performances at the Liberty Stadium have so far earned him ten caps for the Welsh senior side.
The left side of defence has been a problem area for the club for at least two years now and Davies’ potential arrival will surely lead to some changes among the existing squad. Danny Rose is unlikely to be happy at becoming second choice and would probably be moved on, leaving Zeki fryers as cover.
At 21, Fryers is the same age as Davies but while he has said he will be targeting more first team opportunities, the former Manchester United man would be happier than Rose to wait his turn.
The Mirror goes on to claim that the £8m fee has been agreed and that the player is on his way to agree personal terms. Many left backs have been linked but would you be happy for Ben Davies to fill this problem slot?
