Chelsea’s Alex Davey has cut short his loan spell at Scunthorpe after sustaining a calf injury that has now ruled him out for the rest of the season, reports the Daily Star.
He is now back to Stanford Bridge to continue his treatment and recovery, and will have no part to play in the remaining matches for Scunthorpe. Davey sustained the injury in a 2-1 home victory over Crawley Town.
Assistant manager Ned Kelly has also confirmed that Davey will now return to Chelsea.
The defender also took to Twitter to post this message:
“Gutted to not make it to the end of my loan @SUFCOfficial but I wish them all the best, and would like to say a massive Thankyou to the staff, players and fans for make my my time there a great one,enjoyed every minute and wish them all the best.”
Davey joined Scunthorpe late in November, and made 17 appearances for the club, scoring just once.
The 6ft 3in defender has been with the Blues since the age of 11, making 12 appearances for the youth team as a schoolboy in the 2010/2011 season. The Scott who has represented his country a couple of times in the Under-19 level, signed for Scunthorpe on loan in November 2014 after agreeing to a new contract with the Blues that will keep him at the club until 2016.
His loan was expected to end on January 2nd before it was further extended until the end of the current season. He made his loan debut for Scunthorpe against Barnsley where he was hailed by Mark Robins as a promising prospect.
His recent injury will be seen as a huge blow for the lad, whose career has been on the rise since joining the club. He is however, still to make his senior debut for the Stanford Bridge side.
