David Howells (born 15 December 1967) is a former English professional footballer, born in Guildford, Surrey, who played in the Football League as a midfielder for Tottenham Hotspur, with whom he spent the majority of his career, Southampton and Bristol City.

Howells made his debut for Tottenham Hotspur as an 18-year-old in 1986, scoring in a 2 1 win against Sheffield Wednesday. He spent 12 more seasons at White Hart Lane, made 335 first-team appearances, and was on the winning side in the 1991 FA Cup Final. Howells also represented Southampton, scoring once against Arsenal, and Bristol City before retiring from the game in 2000 due to a persistent knee problem.

He went on to run holiday resort-based soccer schools, was involved with Guildford City as director of football and occasional player, appeared for Havant & Waterlooville, coached at Westfield (Surrey), and became a director of a sports agency.

David has a younger brother, Gareth, who is also a professional footballer, playing in goal. As of 2010/11 season, Gareth is a player/coach at Eastleigh FC. Like his brother, Gareth was originally signed on youth terms at Tottenham, but never made the step up to play professionally for the club, and has spent almost his entire career at clubs outside of the Football League structure.
