No chance of Crystal Palace signing Ben Davies


No chance of Crystal Palace signing Ben Davies

Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew wants to take Tottenham left-back Ben Davies on loan in January, but there is virtually no chance of that happening.

The Guardian tell us he has only started 3 games this season and conjecture that he must be looking for games. Have they not failed to realize that the guy is injured and has been since the beginning of November.

When European football kicks in Mauricio Pochettino rotates his full-backs so the only reason the Welshman has not had more starts is his ankle injury, from which he has only just recovered. He has featured in 9 games this season.

The Guardian also speculate, almost certainly wrongly, that any loan move would depend upon Tottenham signing Ryan Sessegnon. If we did sign him it would no doubt be with a loan back to Fulham for the remainder of the season.

Should he be signed permanently then he wouldn't yet be ready for the Premier League or the UEFA Europa League. He is a player with potential, no more, he isn't the finished article and isn't yet a first team player.

Sessegnon is only 16-years-old, he doesn't turn 17 until next May. he has played 9 Championship games, started only 7, and had 1 League Cup game. That in no way qualifies him to take over from Ben Davies.
