Have Spurs made right decision in securing defender’s future?

By | 7th July 2019


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?
