Liverpool are one of the clubs being linked with a move for Aston Villa defender Curtis Davies.

The defender has spent the majority of a disappointing season on the sidelines after dislocating his shoulder in August, but Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is reportedly considering a move for the 25-year-old.

Davies impressed during his first spell in the Premier League with West Brom. He couldn't prevent the Baggies from going down in that 2005-06 season, but earned England U21 recognition for his performances.

The centre back was also called-up to Fabio Capello's first provisional senior squad, but is yet to earn a cap at the highest level.

After a season as skipper at the Hawthorns, Davies made a transfer request in the summer of 2007 and earned a season-long loan move to the Villains.

The defender came to the fore in the later part of that season, and Martin O'Neill agreed a fee in the region of £9 million in July 2008. A first team regular from then on, Davies was becoming an influential figure at Villa Park before injury struck at the start of this term.

Defender additions were added at the midlands club in January, but Martin O'Neill is thought to have challenged Davies to earn his place back in the side after Celtic were reportedly considering a loan move for the defender.

However, The Sun reports that Benitez wants to reignite Davies' career with a £5 million summer move. The Daily Mail also speculates that Spurs are interested in a transfer swoop too, and could offer Jermaine Jenas in a possible part-exchange deal.

O'Neill will have to decide if the defender still fits into his plans at the club, and could look to cash-in on the defender when the transfer window re-opens in June.
