    He was brilliant again at the weekend apparently. If he continues to impress I wonder if we'll consider sending him to NAC Breda next season (assuming they stay up)?

    I would have thought a higher level.

    I'd love to see him get a loan at a PL team, but I wonder if many managers would take a risk on an inexperienced 19 year old.

    I think Davenport is a player who'll do well in the English leagues, don't think he needs to go abroad to have good loans unlike some young players. If he's really catching the eye at Burton, and keeps it up through the end of the season, then he should find it pretty easy to get a loan with Championship promotion candidates - Bristol City maybe as we have a relationship with them and pep loves the way they play.

    He's only just turned 19 so he's got time. His chance to get into the first team squad will be when Fernandinho leaves, probably in 2019 or 2020 at the latest.

    I can't profess to know much about Burton's style of play, but I presume with Clough in charge they at least try and play something resembling football. If they do stay up it might be a good place to send someone like Matt Smith next season.

    But for injury, Jacob Davenport would be at least at the level of Matt Smith. A fine prospect who deserves the best of fortune.
