The highly-rated midfielder joined the club on a four-year deal in the summer of 2018, becoming Tony Mowbray's second summer signing following the addition of Joe Rothwell from Oxford United.

Davenport quickly caught the eye in City's youth system with his tenacious, ball-winning displays and went on to captain their Elite Development Squad.

The 21-year-old was a standout performer in the Sky Bet Championship in 2017-18 during a loan spell at Burton Albion, making 17 appearances in all competitions.

That was enough to prompt Tony Mowbray to snap up the technically gifted midfielder from his boyhood club.

Having suffered an injury-hit first couple of years at Ewood Park, the midfielder will be hoping for better fortunes and regular game time in 2020-21.
