Former Bangor loanee called up to Wales squad
Former Bangor City loanee Jordan Davies has been called up to represent Wales at the Toulon Tournament.
Davies who spent time on loan at the Citizens from August to December was highly rated throughout the league and was a shining beacon for young Welsh talent in the Welsh Premier League.
His performances earned him interest from English side Brighton & Hove Albion, in which his parent club Wrexham accepted.
Then Bangor manager at the time, Andy Legg said that he could see Davies playing for Wales one day and even drew comparisons with Gareth Bale, when speaking to the DailyPost.
“I know there has been interest from a couple of Championship clubs after him and looking at him, and I can only see a bright future for the kid.
“He has got everything about him, dare I say it, he reminds me of a young Gareth Bale, the way he glides past people, goes past them with ease, he has got a terrific left foot, a great temperament and I can’t say anything bad against the lad.”
The Toulon Tournament which has been around since 1964 is a competition to showcase the talent of natioal teams under-21 players.
For Wales this will be be their first participation in the Toulon tournament, where they will play Bahrain, Ivory Coast and the hosts France.
