Ben Davies has recalled his first interactions with some of his Tottenham Hotspur team-mates

Davies, who made the move to North London from Swansea City in July 2014 is one of the club’s longest-serving players having been signed by Mauricio Pochettino.

The Welshman recalled that Harry Kane was in and out of the first team when he first joined and paid tribute to the striker’s work rate to get him into the position which he enjoys today.

The summer arrival of Joe Hart has also gone down well in the dressing room with Davies revealing that the goalkeeper has fitted straight in with the squad.

The left-back who is now competing against Sergio Reguilon for a place in Jose Mourinho’s side also admitted that he does not relish the prospect of facing Steven Bergwijn during training sessions at Hotspur Way and has impressed the 27-year-old with his ability.

“I don’t really enjoy facing him in training. I remember his first day he came in, he just looked a top player from his first day. He came in, brought a good energy around the place and fit straight into the team,” Davies said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.
