This FM 2013 player profile of Ben Davies shows a very promising young left back, probably one of the best Welsh youngsters in the game. At the age of 19 he already has good mental attributes, nice speed and good crossing and tackling but the asking price can be a bit of a drawback, Swansea want no less than 15 million for him.

His progress in my test save was decent, at the age of 26 Davies has solid speed, excellent mental attributes and solid skills needed for a full back (crossing, tackling, marking) and even decent technique. However, judging by his potential at the start of the game, I think he can become a lot better with good training and care.

His progress in the test save was hindered by Tottenham, they bought him in 2016 but hardly played him at all during three seasons before selling him to Wigan. So, the conclusion is that Ben Davies is not the next Gareth Bale, not even close, but he has great potential and can become a top left back. The asking price at the beginning of the game is a bit steep though.

EDIT: Oscar Lindholm has provided us some screen shots of Ben Davies in his game, the year is 2016 and Ben Davies is still at Swansea, playing regularly. As you can see, he is a bit better than it was in my test save after rotting for three years at Spurs.

    hi johnny , nice profile here, this kid looks like pure gold if you sign him in the begining.

    i want to know how simone zaza developes, he has 21 years and seems to have great attributes .

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp March 14, 2013

      Zaza doesn’t develop much in my test save so I guess we’ll have to wait for a better future profile before doing a report.

    can you make a profile of Marquinhos the 18 year old center back from as roma.(preferably on the new winter transfer update by SI)
    he is considered to be one of the best young center backs in the world

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp March 14, 2013

      All our profiles are done using the new transfer update. That said, I checked Marquinhos in my test save and he doesn’t really become one of the best in the world, turned out fairly average in 2019. So I guess we’ll have to wait for better future screenies before considering making a profile.

    Prefer Aaron Cresswell personally…

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp March 14, 2013

      Cresswell is a whole three years older than Davies but a solid player, no doubt about that.

  • comment avatar Oscar Lindholm March 14, 2013

    Here are some pics of him that should be a tad better, and may make you reconsider his rating.

      Are those screenies from a game with the new patch?

      • comment avatar Oscar Lindholm March 16, 2013

        Yes they are.
