According to a report by The Daily Mail, the 26-year-old is set to be handed a new contract to keep him at Spurs for another five years.
It is also claimed within the report that the Wales international could also become Mauricio Pochettino’s first choice left-back in the upcoming campaign, as Danny Rose is one of a number of men thought to be available for sale this summer.
Davies is currently undergoing rehabilitation after undergoing the knife last month, as he had to have surgery on one of his groins after feeling discomfort in it for the majority of the season (The Sun), although it did not bother him enough to take a break from playing.
However, his total recovery time is thought to be around six weeks, meaning he should be back just in time for pre-season.
Fans have been reacting to the news on Twitter in a positive fashion regarding the news that he will be handed a new contract and it would appear many welcome the club’s decision to extend his stay further.
Some stated that Davies was a ‘good back up option to have’ whilst one supporter mentioned that the 26-year-old was the ‘perfect example of a professional’.
Here are just some of their reactions to the news…
A good back up to have and a versatile defender.

Perfect example of a professional, knows he’s the backup left back but is great to fill when Danny needs a rest/injured etc and he’s versatile too play lb or cb.

He’s a good player. Either at LB or CB, I’m very happy with that

Makes perfect sense with his deal having two years to run.

Top, top professional, great around the place, and covers a couple of positions. Makes perfect sense.
