He was starved of game time at Southampton and admits that hampered him early on with the Gers.

Yet, now match fit, the £2.7 million-rated midfielder [Transfermarkt] is looking ahead with positivity.

“I’m sure some of the boys were glad for the break, but for me I’ve enjoyed being in the team for the last couple of games and enjoyed playing the role that I have as well, so I’m looking forward to the last five remaining games,” said Davis, as quoted by the club’s website.

 

“It’s good to get some game time. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the last couple of games and I just want to build on that now and finish the season as strongly as possible.”

Davis keen to contribute

There’s an element of uncertainty about Davis’ future as his loan deal expires shortly. However, he suggested that he wants to stay at the club next season.

“I’m just concentrating on the games at the minute, but obviously I’d like to be (winning trophies next season),” he continued.

“I feel like I have a big part to play. I feel that I bring a lot to the team and I think that we have a hungry group of players with a real desire to start to bring trophies back to the club.

“There’s been a lot of good work and good progress this season and we need to try and take that to another level next season.”

Tying Davis to the club on a permanent basis has to be a priority in the summer window.

He’s near certain to start against Hearts on Saturday afternoon and don’t be surprised if we see another excellent individual display.
