Spurs wait for Pochettino’s approval on Swansea star

The Daily Mail are reporting that Tottenham Hotspur are seeking Mauricio Pochettino’s approval to sign Swansea City left-back Ben Davies.

We all know how desperate we are for a new left-back.  Last season’s performances by Danny Rose were evident that he is not up to the standard to play week-in week-out for us which led the club to send scouts to the Liberty Stadium on a number of occasions last season to watch the Welsh international.

According to the report, Spurs are now waiting for Pochettino to green-light the deal.   Benoit Assou-Ekotto spent last season on loan at Queens Park Rangers and it remains to be seen if Harry Redknapp will try and sign him on a permanent deal following their return to the Premier League.

Do you think Ben Davies would be a good signing for Spurs?  Have your say below.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. A very good signing. And about £20m cheaper than Shaw! If he was English the papers would have been raving about him going to Brazil. Quality defender.

    • yes i have watched ben for swansea several time, he’s a far better tackler and marker than rose by a country mile but most important he’s a natural defender and not bad going forward too, so i won’t mind it at all if he ends up in a spurs shirt. coys

  2. Danny rose was good enough (except 'vs Arsenal' in the FA Cup), and Assou Ekotto has been a good player for the club over the past years. There's no real need to spend money on a position we're ok in.

    • Huh?! Rose has been a complete liability all season – I watched every minute of every Spurs match this season and the amount of dangerous opportunities that lead directly from Rose errors (poor marking, poor positioning, poor passing, missed tackles) was unbelievable. His crossing is also infuriating. Not good enough for Spurs – but still twice the left back Ekotto is. Which is saying a lot.

      PLEASE sign Ben Davies up, Levy.

  3. Lovely, what a classic Daniel Levy signing, nice and young with plenty of resale opportunity when he does well, what a superb master of conning the fans you are Levy, Contraeo would have been superb at the start of last season when he was available, but oh no you offered him 2 cream cheese bagels and a week and a tub of ice cream, you bullshitting arse hole Daniel, just a fooking production line aren't we and some of our idiotic fans think this is a signing for the future of our club, I will say it long enough and loud enough until my snowball rolls down hill gathering fans at an alarming rate and then wallop, we will unite to force you out, .. you are the worst chairman/ chief executive in my lifetime of 42 years, all the others wanted us to perform on the pitch and gave funds to sanction signings like Jimmy Greaves, Gary Lineker, Jurgen Klinsmann, you give us Harry Kane, and we all know that poor sod is just part of the production line like all the others who have been sold, disgusting football club and has been ripping the fans off since you took over..

  4. I think both Davies and Rodrigues would no two great signings for us.
    Sell Ekoto, keep Rose in the squad.
