United also considered a move for Davies’ team mate Frank Fielding before making the Wales international their preferred choice to succeed former loanee Robin Olsen, who joined Aston Villa earlier this month.

Paul Heckingbottom, the United manager, has previously worked with Davies at Barnsley. United, who climbed to 11th in the table following their victory over Luton Town, also want to strengthen at centre-half before the end of the transfer window.
