Tottenham defender Ben Davies is close to agreeing a new long-term contract at the club, according to The Daily Mail.

Davies joined the club from Swansea City in the summer of 2014 as part of the deal that saw Gyfil Sigurdsson move the other way.

And after a successful few seasons competing with Danny Rose for that left-back spot, Pochettino is keen to extend his current deal that has two years left to run. The Daily Mail understands that Davies will sign a five-year deal.

The Welshman was an unused substitute in the Champions League Final defeat to Liverpool last month, but made 40 appearances for Spurs last season – 31 of those from the start – and looks set to stay with the North London side for the foreseeable future.

Talks of a new contract have increased after questions have been raised over Rose’s future, despite the England international starting the final in Madrid and then once again establishing himself as the clubs number one left-back since recovering from his injury nightmare. Like Davies, his deal also expires in 2021.

With Rose a popular figure among the Tottenham faithful, there could be some controversy if Davies is given a new contract, at a time when the former Leeds player is reportedly available for transfer. Do you think Spurs are making the right decision in securing Davies? Should they do the same for Rose?

  1. Davies is sound but Rose is better i don’t get why Poch would want him sold Rose is a warrior great at getting up and down the pitch and tackles like a demon

  2. Davies is the better defender and can be used if required as central defender. Rose is the better player going forward but cannot play elsewhere in defence due to his height. In truth Rose could probably raise more money in a transfer fee, and that’s what Spurs are looking to do. Football is now purely business so keeping Davies and letting Rose go is sound business sense. Some spurs fans might not like that reasoning but that’s modern football folks.

  3. Can’t for the life of me understand why we want to sell Rose; as far as I know he seems settled and happy to remain at Spurs. There is not a better left wing back than a fully fit Dany Rose.Such à shame that both Rose and Davies are both left footed; playing them together at right and left wing back would be ideal.
    Can only think that Rose’s stupid and ill timed interview with the Sun newspaper 2 summer’s ago has left a bad taste in the mouth with the powers that be hence his availability for transfer:a real shame.
