Player Profile

The South African-born striker only had a three-game loan spell from Ipswich Town and arrived at Filbert Street having had plenty of potential but failing to live up to that at Portman Road. It was hoped he'd rekindle that early promise with the Foxes but it never really materialised.

He started his career with Rangers in Johannesburg, his hometown, before Ipswich brought him over to England. D'Avray spent much of the time on the Ipswich bench, although he did get two England U21 caps, and looked for more time on the pitch when he made the loan switch to Leicester.

He struggled at Filbert Street and his time therefore wasn't extended. He returned to Ipswich and they tried playing him in a deeper position. He had one last shot in his senior career in Holland, with NEC, but suffered relegation there and returned to South Africa to try his hand at coaching. He succeeded, with a league and cup double with Cape Town Spurs before going on for a brief spell of employment in football in Australia. His last known job was back in South Africa, however.
