Steve Davies is currently training with League One side Blackpool, according to the Blackpool Gazette.

The 30-year-old is currently without a club after leaving Rochdale at the end of last season but is hoping to impress Blackpool on trial over the next couple of weeks and potentially earn a deal.

Davies has played for the Seasiders before from 2013 to 2015 whilst they were in the Championship and his former club could hand him a route back into the game now. The 6ft 1inc striker scored 8 goals in his first two seasons at Bloomfield Road before leaving them on loan for Sheffield United.

He started his career with Tranmere Rovers and broke into their first-team as a youngster. He played 71 games for them before he was snapped up by Derby County in June 2008. Davies went onto spend four years at Pride Park and bagged 23 goals for them in the Championship.

Davies then left the Rams for Blackpool and has since had spells at Sheffield United, Bradford City and Rochdale. He could now potentially return to the Seasiders, should his trial go well.

Gary Bowyer left Blackpool after just one game this season but Terry McPhillips, who was installed as caretaker manager, has done an impressive job so far. They are currently 11th in the league but are in the hunt for another striker to give them another option going forward. Steve Davies is experienced and already knows the club so could be ideal at this moment in time.
