Alasdair Gold has suggested that Tottenham Hotspur could offer Ben Davies a new contract this summer.

Davies has been in fine form since Antonio Conte walked in through the door in November of last year, with the Welshman making the left centre-back spot his own.

All the talk over the last few weeks has been about Tottenham looking to upgrade on Davies, with the likes of Inter Milan’s Alessandro Bastoni, RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol, Villarreal’s Pau Torres and Barcelona’s Clement Legnlet said to be on the Lilywhites’ radar (Football.London).

In the meantime, Davies has continued churning out impressive performances for his country, with the Tottenham man’s solid display against Ukraine helping Wales to seal passage into the World Cup in Qatar.

Gold pointed out that the former Swansea man now only has two years left to run on his contract in North London and suggested that a new deal might be in the offing for the defender.

The journalist said on his YouTube channel (starting at 7:20): “They do need a new left-footed centre-back to offer competition for Ben Davies.

“But he played very, very well for Wales (against Ukraine). I do wonder whether Davies might end up with a new contract in the not too distant future as well.

“He’s only got two years left and is probably playing the best football of his career, Ben Davies. He needs competition so they both drive each other up.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It will be much more difficult to upgrade on Davies than people assume as the Welshman’s characteristics are perfect for the left centre-back role.

In fact, if Spurs fans did not already have pre-conceived notions about the 29-year-old when Conte arrived and had he been a new signing, we would all be raving about Davies being one of the best defenders in the league.
