Tottenham full-back Ben Davies has agreed a new long-term deal at the club.
That is according to The Daily Telegraph who report that the 26-year old Welsh international has put pen to paper on a new five year deal, even though he still has two years left on his current contract.
The news cast further doubt on the future of England full-back Danny Rose at the North London club – he and Davies vied for the left-back position last season but the new deal for Davies appears a firm indication that the former Swansea player is now firmly established as the preferred option for manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Davies began his career with Swansea, but spent three years in Denmark where his father was working, before returning to the Welsh city. He signed for Spurs in the summer of 2014, and has gone on to make 168 appearances for them.
