Derby County defender Curtis Davies says he wants to re-join his former club Luton Town before his playing days are over, Dunstable Today report.
The Rams skipper began his career at Luton before moving on to West Bromwich Albion.
Davies has spent the majority of his career in the Premier League. Now, the central defender is in his last year of his contract at Derby and has been talking about his future.
Speaking out at the Luton Town Christmas dinner, Davies says he would love to pull on the Luton shirt again and admits it is something he has always wanted to do.
Yes, it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve also got dreams of playing for Leyton Orient though, they’re my local team and Luton are the team that I grew up at. If there was ever an opportunity, it would be nice in the future, but the biggest thing for me is to keep playing as long as possible, keep playing at the highest level as long as possible and then we’ll see what happens.
Curtis Davies shows why he’s a popular player at Pride Park:
Davies, 34, has been an excellent professional during his time at Derby.
The former Hull City man was initially signed by Gary Rowett. He was succeeded by Frank Lampard, who then left to join Chelsea with Phillip Cocu arriving last summer.
Davies suffered an ACL knee ligament injury and was ruled out for nine months. On his return, he captained the Rams in the wake of Richard Keogh’s off-field incident.
Davies has since been a first-team regular for Derby and has performed admirably.
His contract at Pride Park, however, expires next summer and considering he turns 35 next March, it’s likely this will be his last season in a Derby County shirt.
Luton, meanwhile, are in a battle to preserve their Championship status this season. The Hatters are currently down in 21st, one point above the drop zone.
