The former Pools skipper had his contract cancelled at Victoria Park in January and swiftly agreed an 18-month contract with the then Scottish Premiership outfit.

Davies is yet to make an appearance for The Dark Blues after breaking his metatarsal during a training match against St. Johnstone just four days after joining the club. He suffered a second break to his foot just months later and is yet to return to full fitness.

Now the 34-year-old defender is looking to return to England due to ‘family reasons’ and is understood to be in discussions with Dundee about cancelling his contract, according to a report in the Dundee Evening Telegraph.

Davies joined Pools from Ross County last summer and went on to make 14 appearances in all competitions, scoring twice.
