Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has allowed Ulises Davila to leave the club on loan once again.

The Mexican midfielder spent last season at Cordoba, helping them to promotion back to La Liga from the second tier of Spanish football.

Back to Spain

That’s the division the 23-year-old finds himself back in, with the club confirming he's joined Club Deportivo Tenerife for the season as they look to return to the top flight.

An attack-minded player who has represented his country at U23 level, Davala joined the Blues from Guadalajara back in 2011. He has subsequently gone out on loan at Vitesse, Sabadell, Cordoba and now Tenerife.

It’s that last spell which proved most fruitful for the playmaker, notching seven goals in 38 appearances in all competitions - including the vital injury-time equaliser against Las Palmas in the promotion play-off second leg. It took Cordoba into the top flight for the first time in 42 years.

Davila signed a five-year contract on arrival at Stamford Bridge, but is yet to make a single senior appearance for Chelsea following the move to west London from his homeland.

Other exits

And, he’s not the only player to leave the Blues on deadline day, with 22-year-old goalkeeper Matej Delac moving joining Arles-Avignon in France's Ligue 2 and Marco van Ginkel - another midfielder - joining AC Milan on loan.

Nathaniel Chalobah has also left Chelsea for another club in the Premier League, Burnley, whilst Islam Feruz has moved to Crete in Greece.

It's been a quiet day of additions for Mourinho, with the Blues boss getting his deals done before deadline day, with Loic Remy the last of the signings confirmed over the weekend.
