Date of birth
Defender Joe Davis signed with Fleetwood Town on a permanent basis after finishing a one-year loan spell from Leicester City in the summer of 2016.
The Burnley-born centre back started his career in Burslem in the youth ranks at Port Vale Football Club in 2002.
Davis, who was deemed a ‘natural born leader’, was handed the number 25 shirt for the first team. His debut came on 30 April 2011 in a 7-2 win against Morecambe at Vale Park.
Davis went on loan in the 2013/14 season to Luton Town, where he played nine games, winning seven of them. On his return to Vale, he was placed in the main side and was publicly praised by then manager Micky Adams.
In 2014, Leicester City acquired his services and placed him straight into their development squad. The centre-back joined Fleetwood Town on a one-year loan deal in October 2015 and after an impressive season, Town offered him a permanent deal.
