The illness that caused Ben Davies to miss Tottenham's win over AFC Bournemouth this past weekend will keep him out of this week's Champions League tie with Real Madrid.
The timing of Davies' absence is intriguing, as Danny Rose has been working toward a return to action, has been training ahead of Madrid and is in the squad to make his first appearance since last season. However, Spurs are up against one of the best clubs in the world and one wonders if Mauricio Pochettino would want to use this type of matchup to reintroduce the England international. He could opt for Heung-min Son as a wingback as he did over the weekend. Either way, Rose's return calls into question how Tottenham's defense will line up going forward, as Davies has been fantastic thus far. Oct 17 - 6:17 AM

Tottenham will have to do without starting left-back Ben Davies for the second straight match due to illness.

The Welsh international missed the club's 1-0 win against Bournemouth on Saturday after being a late scratch due to illness and will now miss the club's Champions League showdown with Real Madrid on Tuesday. However, manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that defender Danny Rose is set to be in the team after recovering from a knee injury suffered in January. "Danny Rose will be on the bench – that’s important, maybe he’s not fit to play from the beginning but to help the team...Mousa Dembele is here as well. Dele wanted to come and stay with the team. We have injured players like (Erik) Lamela, still recovering and (Victor) Wanyama back at the training ground."

Tottenham announced left-back Ben Davies has signed a new contract extension through the summer of 2021.

The defender has impressed recently as a starter due to an injury to left-back Danny Rose, so much that he drew interest from Crystal Palace in the winter transfer window. The 23-year-old has started each of the last four games in what could be a preview of next season for Spurs fans if Rose leaves the club this summer. Said Davies of the new contract: "I always wanted to play football and to play for one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League and even the world is an unbelievable achievement. This new contract means I’ll be here even longer, which is great."

Mauricio Pochettino has revealed in his press conference ahead of Tottenham's showdown with Manchester United this weekend that left back Ben Davies is available again for selection.

With Toby Alderweireld returning midweek in a substitute appearance for Tottenham's final Champions League match, a healthy Davies now means Spurs are at full strength at the back. Davies should return as cover for Danny Rose but the absence of Alderweireld may give Spurs reason to think about adding a center back in the January window. It will be another week or two before Vincent Janssen and Erik Lamela come back into contention for the attack but a full strength defense will be good news for fantasy managers invested in Tottenham's back line.

Wales will be without Ben Davies for the upcoming World Cup Qualifier against Serbia because of injury.

Mauricio Pochettino confirmed on Friday that Davies had picked up an ankle problem during the Champions League defeat to Bayer Leverkusen at Wembley and the full-back won’t recover sufficiently to represent his country next weekend. Tottenham face West Ham in game week twelve, and his availability at this point is not yet known, although his absence won’t be too much of a concern as has played second fiddle to Danny Rose for most of the campaign. Chris Coleman will call up Adam Matthews, currently on-loan at Championship side Bristol City from Sunderland, as his replacement.

Wales international Ben Davies has been ruled out of Tottenham's derby tilt with Arsenal on Sunday, as the left back suffered an ankle injury is Spurs loss to Leverkusen this week.

Davies may be behind Danny Rose in the left back pecking order, but he is a quality player and Mauricio Pochettino finds plenty of ways to get pitch time for him, including the start in Champions League play. Rose will certainly start the North London derby then. Davies was selected to the Wales squad for the coming international break, but it is uncertain if he will recover in time to participate in either match.

Ben Davies is hoping to be available on Monday when Wales travel to the Olympic Stadium to face Ukraine in an international friendly.

Davies watched his teammates draw with Northern Ireland from the stands on Thursday evening as the Tottenham full-back recovers from the concussion he sustained against Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League 8 days ago. But the defender has now revealed he could be available for selection after a return to training: "I should be fit enough now. I've done a lot of work this week without any problems. So hopefully I'll be able to get a run-out in the game on Monday."

In a lively first half that saw all the goals, The MLS All-Stars would score twice to defeat Tottenham 2-1.

The two sides traded blows with MLS legend Nick Rimando stopping Harry Kane twice from point blanks range. Nacer Chadli committed handball, giving MLS a penalty chance converted by Kaka. Kane would get his goal after Spurs fell 2-0 down, unleashing an accurate blast from distance. Though chances came fewer in the second half, it was a solid shift by many of Spurs youngsters, including Dele Alli. Interesting of note in fantasy terms is how Mauricio Pochettino turned to Ben Davies to start at left back over Danny Rose, when seemingly the other three starting defenders, Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Kyle Walker are looking the favorites to win their respective jobs.

A shoulder injury ended Ben Davies' afternoon early at Southampton after the Welsh full-back fell awkwardly [dislocating his shoulder] in only his ninth league start of the campaign.

Davies replaced the injured Danny Rose [hamstring] but suffered his own problem on 76 minutes and he departed on a stretcher; although the player did re-emerge from the treatment room to watch the final moments of the game with his shoulder supported in a sling. Tottenham will now await the results of further tests plus a specialist report before deciding on the best course of action. Vlad Chiriches is a potential replacement for the visit of Manchester City next weekend if the pair are ruled out although Pochettino may decide to shuffle Jan Vertonghen across to the left with Younes Kaboul playing centrally.

Tottenham's Ben Davies put in his best fantasy performance of the season in Week 15.

In all honestly Spurs were lucky to walk away from the Crystal Palace match with a point, but it was worth noting the performance of Ben Davies. The ex-Swansea full-back was a fantasy favourite last season but had struggled to break in to Maurico Pochettino's first team since signing on at White Hart Lane in the summer. An injury to Danny Rose has opened the door and Davies has been playing well, getting forward and returning 16 points in Week 15 from crosses, tackles and the clean sheet. We'll be monitoring the Welshman's displays and fantasy returns over the coming weeks.

Wales full-back Ben Davies admits he is "frustrated" by his lack of Premier League starts since joining Tottenham from Swansea in the summer.

After a fee of approximately £10million was paid, it was widely believed that Ben Davies had been brought in to become Tottenham's new first-choice left back, but the 21-year-old has found his opportunities limited so far. Danny Rose - who signed a new five-year deal just weeks after Davies arrived - has been preferred by Mauricio Pochettino and has been performing well in the league, so Davies will need to make the most of his Europa League and Capital One Cup appearances to have any chance of breaking in to the Premier League starting line-up.

Ben Davies hopes international outings for Wales will help him to secure a regular first team role at Tottenham.

After a fee of approximately £10million was paid, it was widely believed that Ben Davies had been brought in to become Tottenham's new first-choice left back, but the 21-year-old has found his opportunities limited so far. Danny Rose - who signed a new five-year deal just weeks after Davies arrived - has been preferred by Mauricio Pochettino and has been performing well in the league, so it may take more than a couple of international appearances to change his manager's mind.

Ben Davies and Michel Vorm have both completely their moves from Swansea City to Tottenham Hotspur today according to the Spurs official Twitter feed.

Both moves have been in the press as being essentially done deals for over a week but today brings official word that Spurs have a new left back in Ben Davies and a new goalkeeper in Michel Vorm. Based on his form two seasons ago, the notion of Vorm accepting a back-up role to Hugo Lloris would be odd but after a disappointing season that was also marred by injury and the arrival of Lukasz Fabianski, he was surplus to requirements. Davies will be the presumed starter ahead of Danny Rose who has been rumored to be on the move himself. No word as to whether Gylfi Sigurdsson will be moving in the opposite direction.

Tottenham are closing in on the signing of Swansea left-back Ben Davies, according to Sky sources.

This story has been running for the past month with both Tottenham and Liverpool interested in the Swansea defender, but Sky Sports are now reporting that he's on the verge of a move to White Hart Lane. Left-back was a problem for Spurs last season, with Benoit Assou-Ekotto loaned out to QPR, Jan Vertonghen unhappy to cover in that position and Danny Rose not of the required quality to feature for a team with top four aspirations. Davies is a solid defender, comfortable going forward and would represent an upgrade on current options, making him an ideal first signing for Mauricio Pochettino.
