‘Next 20’ ambassador Ben moves to Tottenham
Ben Davies, one of Kick It Out’s ‘Next 20’ ambassadors, has joined Tottenham Hotspur from Premier League rivals Swansea City.
The Welsh international, 21, has agreed a five-year contract with the Lilywhites and has been joined by former Swans team-mate Michel Vorm in moving to north London. Gylfi Sigurðsson has transferred back to Swansea from Tottenham as part of the deal.
Whilst at the Welsh club last season, Ben visited his old primary school in Neath as part of his role as a ‘Next 20’ ambassador.
The ‘Next 20′ initiative, which launched in October 2013, sees 20 young football stars from across the Premier League, Football League and Women’s Super League (WSL) spread key messages of equality and inclusion.
During the visit Ben spoke of the importance of his involvement with the organisation: “I think it’s a vitally important component in our society at the moment to get Kick It Out’s message across to young people.”
