Davies rewarded by Swansea

Swansea have handed teenage left-back Ben Davies a new

three-and-a-half-year contract with the club.

The 19-year-old has established himself as a regular in the

first team this season after being drafted in to replace the

injured Neil Taylor in September.

Davies has now made 11 Premier League appearances for the Swans

and has also been capped twice by Wales after Chris Coleman

selected him for the World Cup qualifiers against Scotland and

Croatia.

He told the club’s official website: “I’m delighted to have

signed a new deal here.

“It shows the faith the club has in me and I’ve been rewarded

for my performances so far.

“It is more security for me, and that will allow me to keep

working as hard as possible to continue my development here.

“I have already learned a lot from not only playing, but by

working hard in training with the manager, coaching staff and

team-mates and taking as much advice as possible from them. It’s a

great time to be at Swansea City.”
