Tottenham defender Ben Davies has sung the praises of teammate Cristian Romero.

The Argentina centre-half joined Spurs a year ago from Atalanta.

“He's been very good – I remember the first game I played with him was in a back three at Pacos de Ferreira away, it wasn't a great game for the team to be honest, but I think he's been very good for us since he arrived," Davies told the club's website.

“He's good on the ball, strong at tackling and I think as a unit with all of our defenders, we've been good and we really clicked going into the final parts of the season.

“I include everyone in that – Davinson Sanchez and Joe Rodon are great professionals, they work hard every single day and they came in and played some minutes too, as well as the likes of Cristian and Eric Dier. Japhet Tanganga also played his part before his injury.

“In the last couple of months we went on a good run and didn't concede too many goals. I think we had a couple of late goals that were very disappointing – Brighton, Leicester – and if not for them, our record might look even better. But I think we've all adapted throughout the season and done really well together."
