DAVIES'S GREAT OPPORTUNITY

10 January 2017

The full-back is eager to progress quickly at the club.


New Brighton & Hove Albion under-23 full back Jordan Davies spoke about the “great opportunity” he was presented with, following his move from Wrexham.
 
The 18-year-old’s switch to the club was confirmed yesterday and Davies cannot wait to get started with Simon Rusk’s squad.
 
He told seagulls.co.uk, “A few months ago when I was on loan at Bangor, Andy Legg [former Bangor City manager] told me a few clubs were coming to watch me, and that one of them was Brighton.
 
“Since I heard about the interest, I looked into them and it looked like an amazing up-and-coming club pushing for the Premier League.
 
“The facilities are top notch and I don’t think you can find much better in the country. It’s a great opportunity for me.”

The Wales under-19 international believes he can adapt well to Albion’s free-flowing style of play, and says breaking through to the first team is his ultimate aim.  

“I like to think I play with the ball and don’t just hoof it. I like to interlink with other players and I want to take everything I learn here on board and then push on for a [first-team] place.
 
“That would be a dream. I’ll start with the under-23s and see where I go from there. I just need to keep working hard on and off the pitch.”
 
Davies has yet to meet the rest of his under-23 team-mates, but has come across Connor Tighe in the Wales youth set-up.
 
“I’ve trained with Connor a few times when I was on Wales camps, and now I’m looking forward to meeting the rest of the lads and getting started.
 
“It has all happened very quickly, but hopefully I will settle in easily.”
