Michel Vorm believes Ben Davies has all the credentials to become Swansea City’s first-choice left-back for the remainder of the season.
The Swans were dealt a big blow on Saturday after Neil Taylor was ruled out for the rest of the campaign following the draw with Sunderland which saw him fracture and break his ankle in three places.
Davies replaced Taylor after 20 minutes on Saturday in what was his third senior appearance for the Swans.
Vorm was hugely impressed by the Neath product, who has been called for the first time up by Wales as Taylor’s replacement for the 2014 World Cup qualifiers with Belgium and Serbia.
And he feels Davies would slot into Michael Laudrup’s starting XI with relative ease should he be given the nod.
“Ben did very well in pre-season and it is great to have a strong option there, especially as Fede Bessone has left,” said Vorm, who is now on international duty with Holland.
“He did very well against Sunderland. His strength is being very calm in his head - he has a great mentality and works hard.
“He plays as simple as possible but sometimes he goes forward and lends support to the attacking players.
“He is an all-round player. He is a young boy, and he has players around him talking all the time and giving him advice.
“But this is what a squad is all about. We need all the players, and we saw last season with Jazz Richards playing when Angel Rangel was injured and he did very well.
“The players are confident in Ben and we think he can do a good job for us.”
