Billy Sass-Davies form for Yeovil Town has accelerated his chances of breaking into Crewe Alexandra’s first-team next season. The 21-year-old joined the Glovers on loan back in early February and has gone on to play 18 times in the National League, scoring in a 4-1 win at Barnet in March.
The Wales Youth International made three cup appearances for Crewe earlier in the season and he scored his first senior goal against Lincoln City in the EFL Cup to open the new campaign.
The progress made by the young centre-half is one of the main reasons why Olly Lancashire has not been offered a new deal this summer.
The Crewe Alexandra boss, David Artell said: “Billy has been doing very well at Yeovil and hopefully I will get to see him before the end of the season.
“He has gone down there on loan and held his place and it will be another great learning curve for him. It is one of the reasons why I have allowed Olly to leave us. Billy has got to be given his opportunity and I think he is ready.
Artell added: “I will talk to him, to reassure him that him going out on to Yeovil is all part of his development. He has been placed on loan for that very reason, much in the same way Owen Dale was. “
