Tottenham Hotspur defender Ben Davies has recently undergone groin surgery to combat a hernia problem that he had suffered for large parts of the season.
After a successful operation, Davies has now returned to Hotspur Way to begin his rehabilitation ahead of the 2019/20 season after posting a photo on his Instagram story that showed the inside of the training ground.
According to Football London, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino ‘adores’ Davies, viewing him as the ‘ultimate squad professional’. With this in mind, it is hard to envisage Davies leaving the club this summer, even with the ever-growing speculation surrounding Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.
It looks as though Danny Rose would be more likely to make way for Sessegnon despite Rose’s impressive displays towards the end of the season (Talk Sport).
Should Spurs buy a left-back this summer then it seems as though Davies would remain at Spurs to increase the clubs squad depth.
Spurs Web Opinion
Davies has become an integral part of Pochettino’s Spurs in recent seasons. Clearly Pochettino still values Davies as a squad player and is not looking to move him on this summer.
Davies certainly does play an important role at Spurs but as an attacking full-back he has come unstuck this season, for me. At times Davies has looked fairly one-dimensional going forward and I actually believe he would represent a better option as a rotational centre-back in a five-man (including wing backs) defence.
