TRANSFER TALKPlenty of transfer speculation simply because journalists think that if a player isn't playing as much as they think he should then he must want to leave. The Ben Davies to Chelsea or Crystal Palace or any other club stories never really had any ring of truth about them. There was never any concrete evidence just hearsay.
The 23-year-old (24 in April) Welsh international has now ended all that by signing a new four-year contract at White Hart Lane and is looking forward to a continued run in the side with Danny Rose out of action until early April.
He may not be as attacking as Danny Rose but he does offer a threat as his days in Wales showed. For Wales he plays in a back three so has the versatility Mauricio Pochettino likes and being more defensively minded, it allows Kyle Walker a little more attacking scope.
If you look where we attack with Davies in the side there is a marked difference to when Rose is in the side and he has a little less composure perhaps when in a goalscoring position.
With one game a week now h is getting plenty of rest between games and time to practice which should now help us for the run-in to the season. before that though is the FA Cup tie against Millwall with a place in the semi-final at stake.
