Curtis Eyes Albion Return
Curtis Davies today formalised his permanent move from West Brom and immediately set his sights on a Hawthorns return.
The central defender is currently recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon and believes he is well on course for a return to Barclays Premier League action in September.
And he would love to return in time to face former club Albion on September 20 in the fifth game of the Barclays Premier League campaign.
Davies, who today penned a four-year deal told www.avfc.co.uk: "I think everyone knows what game I'm targeting - the game at the Albion on September 20. It's a very tight thing but potentially I think I can be back for that.
"Obviously it'll be down to the gaffer and I hope the team that starts the season gets off to a flier. I'm not going to expect to walk straight back into the team for any game.
"I just need to keep progressing really. I can't worry about any one individual game, as much as I'd love to play that game, there's a lot more to the season - hopefully with a long European campaign coming up. I need to make sure I'm right for the whole season and not just the one game."
