Davies Deal – Reaction

Pompey have signed Ben Davies on a one-year deal.

Davies told the club website:

“I spoke to a few clubs closer to home, but as soon as I knew Pompey were interested it was an easy decision to make.

We’ve all been pretty relaxed about the deal being done, but I’m delighted it’s happened in time for the first  game.

I’ve been here for a good few weeks, so I know all about the lads, their style of play and what a big club this is.

I like to play all over the place – at Derby I was a left-winger, right-winger and right-back, and at Sheffield United last year I played most of it at right-back. If a position comes up and is available I’ll do a good job anywhere.”

Fans have been pleased with the addition:

@ryanbriscoe123: Pleased we’ve finally got @18bendavies in time for Saturday,really impressed pre season with him! Fratton Parks gonna be bouncing Saturday!

@MrDavishPFC: A right back, AT LAST! Ben Davies signs for #Pompey on a 1 year deal. Let’s get ready for Saturday now!

Sheffield Utd fans have praised Evans too:

@philipbackhouse: All the best @18bendavies on your move to #Pompey Think you & Doyle will do the business down there.

@GavlarLambert: good signing, very steady player. Shame last season didn’t work out as it should have done.

@callumwillis23: @18bendavies well done on the move to Pompey! Always gave 100%, hopefully help them up!

Davies is expected to go straight into the Pompemy starting line-up in the right-back position when they open their 15/16 season in League Two against Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday.
