Tottenham Reject £8 Million Offer For Defender After Jan Vertonghen’s Injury



Tottenham are understood to have rejected an £8 million from Crystal Palace for defender Ben Davies, according to the reports from the Daily Mirror. The Welsh international has been a subject of much trust transfer interest in the last few months. His failure to secure a first-team spot at Tottenham is believed to have been a major reason behind the player seriously considering a move away from White Hart Lane. A signing from Swansea for around £10 million back in the summer of 2014, Davies has a contract with Tottenham only until the summer of 2019. Interestingly, he was not one of the players considered for a new contract.

Spurs have been on a contract signing spree over the last few months. Yet, Davies has not been one of the players offered a new deal and this clearly suggests that the club are willing to let the player leave if the offer is right. Now, though, there may be exchanged in the club’s stance. Even though Crystal Palace have reportedly come in with an £8 million, which is likely to be increased with further negotiations, Spurs are unwilling to sell the player after learning about the bad injury to defender Jan Vertonghen.

The player will be out for up to 2 months and this is a major problem for the club especially with Toby Alderweireld also limping out of the 2-2 draw with Manchester City with what appeared to be a hamstring problem. This would mean at least a couple of weeks of the sidelines for the Belgian international. It would leave manager Mauricio Pochettino extremely short of options at the back. It is understood that the plan is to use Davies as the centre back if the injury crisis deepens.

It remains to be seen if Davies will appreciate this move from the club considering that the transfer offer from Crystal Palace may not be on the table come the summer. Since taking over from Alan Pardew almost a month ago, manager Sam Allardyce is still without a victory in the league. A fourth consecutive defeat during the weekend saw the team slip into the relegation zone. As a result, the club are extremely keen on shoring up the difference even though it was only a narrow 1-0 loss against Everton.

Davies has started only three Premier League matches this season, and the defender is reportedly concerned about his international future if his lack of first-team football continues to be an issue. Wales manager Chris Coleman recently claimed that he will not consider players who are unable to secure regular first-team football for their clubs.
