Teenage Swansea defender Ben Davies has signed a new three-and-half-year contract with the Barclays Premier League club.

The 19-year-old left-back had 18 months left on his existing deal, but the Swans were keen to tie him to a long-term contract after impressing so far this season.

Davies was thrust into the first team after Neil Taylor suffered a broken ankle against Sunderland at the start of September, and his form was rewarded with his inclusion in Chris Coleman's Wales side for the World Cup qualifiers against Scotland and Croatia.
