Biography

In February 2015, Fulham announced the signing of promising young defender Aron Davies from Bristol City on a deal that keeps him at the Club until 30th June 2018.

The Wales youth international is highly rated, and Academy Director Huw Jennings was pleased to secure his signature.

"He’s a talented left-sided centre-half," he said. "He’s a player we’ve been looking at because, profile-wise, we’ve lacked central defenders this year and certainly we think Aron’s got a lot of potential for the future. 

"He’s had involvement in a variety of Wales’ youth squads and he’s the type of composed defender who will be one that we’ll hope to develop for the long-term.

"One of the things that we’ve needed in our Under-18 group is an emphasis on leadership, and we think that Aron’s got those credentials."

Davies had a successful 2016/17 season with the Under-23s side, making 23 appearances in all. In those games he claimed 36 interceptions, made 32 tackles and 153 clearances.

He was called up to the Under-20 Wales national team at the end of the season to compete at the Toulon Tournament, but unfortunately had to pull out with injury.
