Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that Ben Davies is set to sign a new contract.
The Daily Mail report that the Welshman is close to agreeing a new five year contract in North London and claims that he is considered as the club’s first-choice left-back ahead of Danny Rose.
Davies joined Spurs from Swansea City in 2014 and has gone on to make 110 appearances for Mauricio Pochettino’s side in the Premier League.
Rose is said to be one of seven players who have been made available for transfer this summer in order to raise further transfer funds, which will certainly frustrate many Spurs fans if it proves to be true (Mail).
The vast majority of Spurs supporters seemed pleased with the news that the Welsh international could be set to put pen to paper on extending his stay.
Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted to the news of Davies’ potential new deal.
Perfect example of a professional, knows he’s the backup left back but is great to fill when Danny needs a rest/injured etc and he’s versatile too play lb or cb.

Makes perfect sense with his deal having two years to run.

This is good

I’d like him to be LCB cover

It's Rose we need to keep not Davies.

Good. Versatile player, professional and credit that he soldiered through an injury last season.

Top, top professional, great around the place, and covers a couple of positions. Makes perfect sense.

Vastly underrated member of the squad. Versatile and never gives less than 100% I suspect he’d do a decent job in centre midfield too if asked
