Chelsea youngster Ulises Davila is confident that he can impress club scouts enough to earn a spot in the Blues' first team while on loan.

The Mexican forward is currently at Sabadell in the Spanish Segunda division, but revealed that Stamford Bridge personnel are monitoring his progress closely and regularly attending his games.

"There's a Chelsea rep who comes every 15 days to watch my home games," Davila told Goal.com.

"Three weeks ago, the head scout came to watch the match against Barcelona B. They're paying attention, watching my matches and tell me when they observe something in my game.

"They let me know when they think I should improve certain aspects so I can keep growing. That gives me confidence so I can be better every time.

"I feel great right now, I'm recovering from a broken hand I sustained a couple of weeks ago, but I feel happy, I think I've gotten a lot better; this time in my career has served me in order to grow as a player."

Davila, 21, signed a five-year contract with Chelsea after moving from Chivas in 2011 and was immediately sent on loan to Vitesse Arnhem, although only made three appearances in a disappointing spell. However, since Sabadell this term, Davila has been a regular and is much happier in Spain.

He continued: "In the Netherlands the language and the weather, it takes you about six or seven months, then you adapt, and it serves you to get into the rhythm and speed of European football.

"When I came to Spain I felt better, more adapted. Coming here was easier, I liked it."

Davila has an eye on rejoining Chelsea and playing for the Blues' first team, but he is understanding of the club's plan for him and has adopted a patient approach to one day playing in the Premier League.

"I'm going through the process that they've set out for me," Davila said. "They want me to develop for two, maybe three years on loan.

"They've told me that being at a club like Chelsea is adapting to circumstances, growth, loan spells, learning abroad and being a player who wants to reach the top. When Chelsea tells me that it's convenient for me to go back, I will, and I hope I get to play with the first team soon."
