Ben Davies says he’s ready to up his game in 2015-16 after a solid first year at White Hart Lane.

The summer 2014 arrival from Swansea City featured 29 times in all competitions for us in 2014-15 before a shoulder injury sustained at Southampton in April ruled him out for the rest of the campaign.

Having sacrificed a summer break to work on his recuperation, the Welsh international left-back is aiming to kick on next term and build on his first full year at White Hart Lane.

“I’d probably only visited London once as a tourist before I came here,” admitted the 22-year-old, who enjoyed a healthy battle with Danny Rose for the left-back berth last term.

“It was a big change for me but I’ve settled in well, I like it here and I feel settled and happy. We’ve a good group here, good staff, and my move was all sorted in a couple of months to be honest.

“In terms of the playing side, Danny and I have pushed each other on over the last year and we’ve worked hard together to improve each other as players.

“There is always a battle in that situation where you have two players vying for the same position, but there would be no point being here if we’re not going to fight for it.

“That pushes you on, ups your game and I think it’s done that for both of us.

“We’ve had time to reflect on last season but now we need to look forward to next season and focus on getting better.”
