Swansea boss Laudrup delighted with Davies deal

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup is delighted with Ben Davies' new contract.

The defender has penned terms to 2017.

Laudrup was full of praise for how the Wales international has taken his chance.

"It is a positive story for Ben, for Swansea and Wales," said Laudrup. "It is always good to see local players come through.

"He came in when Neil Taylor got a serious injury. He got a chance and the rest is history.

"He is doing well, his attitude towards the game is great and he is still young.

"He has already done a lot but every day in training he wants to improve. He doesn't think he has arrived and that is the right attitude.

"I am sure one day - although it may not be good news for Swansea - we will see Ben at one of the top five or six clubs in the Premier League."
