Carlton Palmer has told Football FanCast that Southampton would be an excellent move for Tom Davies.
Following three central midfielder additions made by Carlo Ancelotti last season, Davies was restricted to just 17 Premier League starts having found himself down the pecking order at Goodison Park.
Davies failed to score in any of his 25 league appearances, registering just one assist in the home defeat to Burnley in what proved a difficult campaign for the England Under-21s international.
Despite his struggles, Southampton, who failed in their attempts to sign him 12 months ago, are keen on revisiting their interest in Toffees midfielder this summer according to Football Insider.
Davies still has two years remaining on his contract, which would force the Saints to dig into their pockets, but with James Ward-Prowse strongly linked with Aston Villa, the 22-year-old could be an ideal replacement for the captain.
And Palmer exclusively told Football FanCast that a switch to St Mary’s would help the Everton Academy graduate get his career back on track:
“He’s a very fit lad, he gets up and down, and to go to a club like Southampton, it rejuvenates them in terms of their performances.
“I think that would be a great move for Tom to get him back playing regularly, and he is a very energetic player and I think he would fit into that mould.”
