Career[edit]

Middlesbrough[edit]

Davies was born in Stockton-on-Tees and attended Northfield School in Billingham, near Middlesbrough. He joined Middlesbrough as a thirteen-year-old, moving up the club ranks as a member of the reserve side. Davies turned professional in October 2002 after impressing in the under-19s and as captain of the reserve team.[1][2] He made his debut on 6 November 2002, in a League Cup defeat against Ipswich Town. His Premier League debut came three months later, in a 5–2 defeat at home to Aston Villa.

He made nine further appearances during the 2003–04 season before suffering a broken leg in a reserve league game in March 2004.[3] Despite this, Davies was named 2003–04 Middlesbrough Players' Young Player of the Year.[4] He made his first team return from injury against Coventry City in the League Cup on 27 October 2004.[5]

He made two appearances in the first half of the 2004–05 season before joining Queens Park Rangers on an initial one month's loan in January to gain some first team experience, eventually remaining there for three months.[6] Davies initially turned down a permanent move to the club.[7] Following an injury crisis, he was recalled by Middlesbrough in April 2005.[8]

In July 2005, Davies was loaned out again, to Derby County until the end of the 2005-06 season with the deal including a clause that allowed him to be recalled by his parent club in January. This was initially for a period of six months, although it was later extended to a full season's loan.[9] Davies made his Derby County debut in the opening game of the season, playing the full 90 minutes, in a 1–1 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion.[10] His first goal came on 18 September 2005, in a 2–2 draw against Southampton.[11] Three months later on 3 December 2005, Davies scored twice, in a 2-0 win over Norwich City.[12] In January 2006, an injury crisis at Middlesbrough prompted them to recall Davies, who had generally impressed during his time at Derby, despite being sent off on three occasions.[13]

On his return to the Riverside Stadium, Davies played a significant role in Middlesbrough's journey to the semi finals of the FA Cup and final of the UEFA Cup. With Gareth Southgate committing to youth in 2006–07, Davies found his way into the first team and made 23 appearances in all.

Southampton[edit]

Davies signed for Southampton on 9 October 2007, on an initial three-month loan with a view to a permanent transfer in January.[14] It took until 3 November 2007 for Davies to make his Southampton debut, coming on as a substitute for Grégory Vignal in the 72nd minute, in a 1–0 loss against Charlton Athletic.[15]

On 10 January 2008, the signing was made permanent, for an undisclosed fee,[16] believed to be £1 million.[17] He missed the last few matches of the 2007–08 season as a result of a fractured cheek bone incurred in March 2008.[18] Despite only playing for half a season, he was voted the Saints Player of the Season.[19]

Ahead of the 2008–09 season, Davies said he was close to making a return to full first team training and was expecting to return in three to four weeks.[20]

Stoke City[edit]

In August 2008, Stoke City manager Tony Pulis told BBC Radio Stoke that Southampton had accepted a £1.3 million bid for Davies, with the club having to cut their wage bill.[21] The move was completed on 19 August 2008, as he signed for newly promoted Stoke for an undisclosed fee, signing a four-year contract.[22]

However, Davies' start at Stoke didn't go as planned after suffering a knee injury in training, resulting in him requiring an operation.[23] In late-November, Davies was close to making a first team return and played in the reserve side.[24] He did not feature for the first team until the beginning of December 2008, when he made several appearances on the bench with his first being an away game against Newcastle United.[25] Davies made his Stoke debut against Manchester United, coming on as a substitute for Rory Delap in the 72nd minute on Boxing Day 2008, playing at right back after Andy Wilkinson had been sent off for a second bookable offence. [26] He made another substitute appearance on 28 December 2008, against West Ham.[27] Davies made his first start against Hartlepool United in the FA Cup third Round which ended in a shock 2–0 victory for the League One side.[28] During the match, he sustained an injury in the 71st minute when he fell into the Hartlepool dugout. Davies then played no further part in Stoke's 2008–09 campaign.

Loan moves[edit]

On 13 February 2009, Davies signed for Preston North End on a one-month emergency loan.[29] He made his debut the next day, playing 90 minutes, in a 1–0 win over Norwich City.[30] After making five appearance for Preston, Davies returned to his parent club.[citation needed]

Having failed to make the bench for Stoke at the start of the 2009–10 season, Davies joined Sheffield United on a three-month loan in September 2009.[31] On the same day, he made his debut, in the Steel City derby, playing 90 minutes, in a 3–2 win over Sheffield Wednesday.[32] With his loan expiring in December, Davies returned to Stoke having played eight times for "The Blades".[33]

After being left out of Stoke's 25-man squad for the 2010–11 season, Davies joined Walsall for an initial month's loan on 6 October 2010.[34] He made his Walsall debut three days after signing for the club, in a 2–-1 win over Exeter City.[35] However, Davies suffered a thigh injury during a match against Tranmere Rovers and had his loan spell with Walsall, which was originally going to end on 7 November 2010, cut short.[36]

On 18 February, he re-joined Middlesbrough on loan for the rest of the 2010–11 season[37] and made his debut against in a 3–2 victory at Millwall the same day.[38] After making six appearances for the club, he was allowed to return to Stoke having struggled with injuries.[39]

On 3 August 2011, Davies joined Crystal Palace on a one-month loan deal.[40] He made his Crystal Palace debut in the opening game of the season, in a 2–1 loss against Peterborough United[41] and made another appearance in the first round of the League Cup, where he set up one of Wilfried Zaha's goals in a 2–0 win over Crawley Town.[42] These were his only appearances for the Eagles and he returned to Stoke City at the end of August.[43]

Davies signed for Bradford City on a three-month loan on 23 September 2011.[44][45] In October 2011, he was sent off in consecutive games, against Torquay United[46] and Swindon Town.[47] Having served a three-game suspension for the first red card,[48] he received a four-match ban for the red card against Swindon, due to it being his second of the season.[49] In December 2011, Davies agreed to extend his loan until the end of the season.[50] He scored his first goal for the club with a curling free kick on 21 January 2012, in a 1–1 draw at home to Burton Albion.[51] He appeared to score his second goal for the club against Bristol Rovers; however, the goal was eventually credited to team mate David Syers.[52] His second goal of 2012 came in the 5th minute of injury time against Port Vale in a 1–1 draw on 14 February.[53] Davies was sent off for a third time in the 2011–12 season following a post-match brawl against Crawley Town[54] and received a five match ban.[55]
