Mexican attacking midfielder Ulises Davila is set to bolster Indian Super League (ISL) side Delhi Dynamos' attack, Goal can confirm.
Davila was signed by Premier League side Chelsea FC in 2011 but failed to make a single appearance for the first team. In his first year, he was loaned out to Vitesse Arnhem where he made just three appearances. He went on to taste success in Spanish third division with CE Sabadell FC, which helped him move up the ranks in Iberia with Cordoba and Tenerife respectively.
He hails from the academy of Guadalajara - the same youth system that produced former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.
His latest stint was with Mexican outfit Santos Laguna who ply their trade in the top tier of Mexican football where he made some sporadic appearances for the club. He had 'Pact of Knight' clause in his contract with Santos which prevented him from signing for any other Liga MX club even after terminating his contract with his former employers.
Delhi Dynamos have been wasteful in front of goal and head coach Josep Gombau will hope that the arrival of the 27-year-old attacking player will resolve his team's goal-scoring woes. In their last match against Bengaluru FC especially, they squared several chances in the attacking third and conceded late to succumb to a 1-0 defeat away from home.
In fact, they have scored only seven goals in the season so far.
The Lions have not yet managed to register a single win in nine matches and sit last in the table with just four points. They will next face Mumbai City at home on December 3.
