Mexican forward Ulises Davila will rejoin Vitoria Setubal for the 2015-16 season in the Portuguese Primera Liga, on loan from Chelsea.

Attacking midfielder Ulises Davila will Vitoria Setubal for the 2015-16 season, after Chelsea agreed another loan deal with the Portuguese club, according to sports outlet A Bola.

Davila became the first Mexican player to sign for Chelsea in August 2011, when he moved from Deportivo Guadalajara, penning a five-year contract at Stamford Bridge. However, he was immediately shipped out on loan to Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, but spent most of his time playing in their reserve side.

Since then, he's spent most of his time playing in the Spanish second-tier, starting with a spell at Catalan side Sabadell for the 2012-13 season. Davila then helped Cordoba win promotion to the Primera, during a successful 2013-14 campaign that saw the Andaluz side win Segunda play-off final. His goal in the second-leg proving decisive.

Although Cordoba were keen to keep Davila, his next move was once more to the Segunda and CD Tenerife for the start of the 2014-15 season, but after just 10 league appearances and one goal, that spell was cut short.

In the January 2015 transfer window, he was loaned to Vitoria Setubal in the Portuguese Primera Liga, where he made 12 appearances in all competitions, during the remainder of the season.

Whilst there were initially doubts a return was possible, the report from A Bola states that new Vitoria manager Quim Machado was keen to sign 24-year-old Davila, therefore regards the approval from Chelsea as very positive news.

Davila is now expected to link up with the Vitoria squad on Tuesday, where he'll begin pre-season training after the formality of a medical, with an official announcement to follow suit from the club.
