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.”
