Defender Ben Davies signs new Swansea City contract

Swansea City's 19-year-old defender Ben Davies has signed a new two-year contract with the Premier League side.

Davies was a member of Swansea's Welsh Youth Cup winning side in 2011 and was a reserve team regular last season.

The Neath-born player signed his first professional deal last year but has yet to make a first team appearance.

"I was only expecting a year's contract if I was to get an extension but when I found out I was getting two years I was over the moon," Davies said.external-link

"I feel as though I've definitely improved over the last year and it's great to be around this squad because they are all great players and I can learn a lot from them."
