Here to contribute - Davies

20 February 2014

United's newest loan recruit is looking forward to getting into the thick of the action.


Ben Davies joined the Blades on-loan for the remainder of the season on Wednesday afternoon and after beating the race against time to be involved against Gillingham, the 32-year-old made his debut as a second-half substitute in United's deserved 1-0 victory at Priestfield.


Of his temporary switch, Davies commented: "Discussions about this move have been going on for a while and we hoped to get it sorted before the Forest game, but it took time."


"Derby have had a couple phone calls for my services recently but they weren't right for me and I would only have dropped out of the Championship to come here."


The versatile performer is optimistic about his stay in South Yorkshire and wants to help contribute to steering Nigel Clough's side away from the bottom four in League One.


He added: "I thought the lads were superb at Gillingham, the Gaffer described it as the biggest win of the season and it now gives us something to build on.


"We are out of the bottom four and now we must kick on and continue to move up the table.


"Hopefully I can chip in with a few goals and assists in the process too."
