Tottenham Hotspur are set to complete the signing of left-back Ben Davies after agreeing an £8m deal with Swansea, reports claim.

New Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has been in the hunt for a left-back since his appointment, as the position was a point of weakness for the north Londoners last season.

Even though Spurs can call on 23-year-old Danny Rose, Jan Vertonghen was forced to cover him a number of times last season.

Tottenham have recently linked with Liverpool target Alberto Moreno and Real Madrid duo Fabio Coentrao and Marcelo. However, the Mirror claims Spurs have finally settled on Davies.

According to Mirror, the White Hart Lane side have already agreed a fee and the defender is now heading for London to discuss personal terms and complete the move.

The 21-year-old left-back came through the ranks of Swansea's youth system before breaking into the first team in 2012 under the guidance of former manager Michael Laudrup.

Davies has since excelled for his club, being named Swansea's Young Player of the Year for two years in a row and earning a place in the Wales national squad.

After Spurs spent over £100m on players last summer but failed to secure a Champions League place, Pochettino is preparing a summer overhaul of his squad.

As well as a left-back, the Argentinian manager is looking for a centre-back with recent reports claiming Spurs have already launched a £15m bid for Southampton star Dejan Lovren.

However it also reported that Tottenham are set to lose the race for promising Belgium striker Divock Origi, who is set to move to Liverpool instead.
