Born: 24 April 1993 (Neath, Wales)
Welsh international left-back Ben Davies has established himself as a dependable figure in our squad since arriving from Swansea City in July, 2014.
The defender featured in 27 of our 38 Premier League matches in 2018/19 - his fifth season as a Spur - with seven of those appearances coming from the bench. In all, he played 39 times over the course of that campaign, including nine appearances - six starts - in our run to the Champions League Final, while he also filled in as the left-sided centre-half on a couple of occasions, a role he's familiar with from his time in the Welsh national team.
Born in Neath, Ben earned his first professional contract with Swansea in 2011 and excelled in their first team, winning their Young Player of the Year accolade in 2013 and 2014. He made a total of 91 appearances for the Swans, including a start in their League Cup Final win against Bradford City in 2013.
Upon joining Spurs, he encountered tremendous competition for places and in his debut season in North London, 2014/15, Ben played 29 times in all competitions for us, including nine starts in the Europa League - more than any other player. Unfortunately, he dislocated his shoulder against Southampton in April, 2015, ending his campaign early.
He subsequently made 27 appearances in all competitions during the 2015/16 campaign.
He began to enjoy a sustained run in the side during the second half of the 2016/17 season and it was then that he scored his first two goals for the club - one against Aston Villa in the FA Cup in January, 2017, and another on the last day of that season as we thrashed Hull City 7-1 in the Premier League. He'd previously made his Champions League debut against AS Monaco in September, 2016, and ended 2016/17 having played 34 times in all competitions.
Always defensively solid, Ben has added an attacking verve to his game during his time at the club and contributed numerous assists from his flank during an excellent 2017/18 campaign in which he featured 38 times in all competitions, scoring in away wins against Newcastle United and Huddersfield Town.
A regular on the international scene for Wales, often operating on the left side of a back three, he helped his country qualify for their first major tournament finals since the 1958 FIFA World Cup by claiming a place at Euro 2016 in France and was instrumental in Wales' run to the semi-finals of the tournament, playing every minute of every game up until the last four clash with Portugal, which he missed through suspension.
