As the football season in Europe comes to an end, it is the dream of every Chelsea player on loan to get a recall to Stamford bridge, at least to participate in the pre-season tour, and maybe get one more opportunity to impress the special one for a permanent recall to his squad. Most leagues across the continent are few matches from wrapping up, at most 3. And one of such loanees is Scotland’s Alex Davey. The 20 year-old defender has been with the Blues since around 11 years of age. But he is one of those potentials Chelsea would rather loan out repeatedly for seasons (do I hear you say Matic), than part ways with.

The former under-19 Scotland international who is on loan at League One side, Scunthorpe United F.C had signed a contract extension with Chelsea until 2016 before his departure for loan. He was part of the youth team under-21 squad that won the FA Youth Cup back in 2012. He moved to Scunthorpe November last year, and chose to continue to the end of the season during the winter transfer window.

He has made 13 appearances for the team, and helped them move from 23rd position (relegation zone) to 16th. The player whose current loan now ends by the end of June has scored a goal for the club, one that came in against Chesterfield in the FA Cup 3rd round. As the season ends, his fate is yet to be decided. But getting a spot even on the first team’s bench wouldn’t be possible just now. With the likes of John Terry, Cahill and Zouma (his age mate) still in the squad and still putting up great performances at the defence of the Blues, Dave will have to go on another loan. This time to a bigger club.

If the Marseille partnership works out, he could get loaned out to France. Or to Netherlands, for Vitesse. Belgium sides, Royal Mouscron-Peruwelz and Royal White Star Brussels are also options for the 6ft tall defender. But we will have to wait till the summer transfer window opens before we know what the future holds for Alex Davey. No doubt, he will remain a Chelsea player, and will hope to one day make his debut for the pensioners. Before then, Alex will just have to keep stepping up his game.
