Playing Career

Davies started his career with Wimbledon FC, as a trainee, at the age of 15. A year later, he was released. He wrote to every club in the local area, Luton Town FC responded first, two weeks before any other club, and a trial was offered. During the trial, he scored two goals in three games and was handed a scholarship. He made his full team debut in 2003. His performances were noted by West Bromwich Albion FC and they eventually signed him on 31 August 2005 for £3 million. Exactly two years later, on 31 August 2007, Davies signed for Aston Villa on a season long loan deal. He signed a permanent transfer on 3 July 2008 for £8 million. Davies went on loan to Leicester City FC on 15 October 2010 for three months. Then on 28 January 2011, Davies signed for rivals, Birmingham City FC. Signed for Hull City AFC on 25 June 2013 and following their relegation, Derby County FC signed Davies on 7 June 2017. Following his release at the end of the 2022-23 season, Davies signed with Cheltenham Town FC on 27 June 2023.
