Calum Davenport heads home

Former West Ham defender Calum Davenport returned home recently after training with Leeds. Simon Grayson offered an open invitation to Davenport to continue training with Leeds but the player has decided to play for his local side, Wootton Blue Cross, in the United Counties League Division One (level 10 of the English football league system). The decision seems to be based around Davenport’s desire to play regular competitive football over reserve games. Simon Grayson has said he will keep an eye on him.

Davenport is obviously a player of some ability and the possibility of Leeds signing him brought a positive reaction from many fans. Though it seems his acquisition is unlikely any time soon, Simon Grayson and fans will be hoping he manages to regain his fitness soon and feels prepared to return to training at Leeds.

In other news, former Stoke and Portsmouth midfielder Amdy Faye, played ninety minutes for Leeds United reserves in a 1-1 draw against Grimsby last night. However Simon Grayson isn’t giving much away other than saying the club would talk to his agent and see what options are open.
