The lure of playing Champions League football may be enough to lure Ben Davies away from Spurs and into the clutches of Liverpool but it means little if his current club aren’t prepared to shift on their required transfer fee.

When the 21 year was first mentioned in connection with a switch to White Hart Lane, it was claimed that our £8m bid had been rejected by the Wales based Premiership side. There followed suggestions of a swap deal involving Gylfi Sigurdsson while elsewhere, it was thought that Swansea would accept £10m.

Today, it’s being widely reported that Liverpool, who had supposedly taken over from Spurs as front runners for Davies’ signature, have also had an £8m bid turned down. The defender still seems set to leave the Liberty Stadium but rather than it being guaranteed that the top four side will be first in line, it seems that it will just come down to the highest bidder.

  1. Just one month to go til the new season start’s and no new arrival’s which could be a good thing but at the same time we have a few players we can’t shift like dawson and siggurdson for whatever reason.Add to that we are playing around with this transaction too much that we are wasting time there are other LB’s we could consider not just ben davies, if £8m is not enough then move on we are running out of time. COYS!

  2. Why have we not looked at Jason Davidson, Australia’s left back. He is fast, skilful, great going forward and sound defensively. He’s had 2 years in the Dutch League and a World Cup and is FREE. Please Poch, have a look. While you’re looking at Jason, check out another Australian; Mat Spiranovic, a classy central defender, 21 years old, and was plying is trade in the Bundisliga at 19. Currently with Western Sydney, would not cost more than 3million.

  3. I’ve seen Ben Davies play week in week and at £12 million he’s a bargain! I think it’s only fair the stand Swansea City are making, because whoever does eventually get him, in two years they will make a lot more! Check the states for the last two seasons which speak for themselves, and the Club are no fools!

  4. Keep up, we have had a £10 million bid accepted! doesn’t mean he will sign for us though as Liverpool could match it or even bid more and offer Champions League football so not holding my breath.
