Kyle Graham Davies (born April 11, 1989, in Danville, California, United States) is an American soccer player.
Davies was a member of the US National U-17 Residency in Bradenton, FL and was expected to go play in college before entering the MLS SuperDraft. However, he was offered a contract with English side Southampton, who he joined in February 2007. Work permit issues weren't a problem due to having British parents. He was a consistent member of the youth and reserve setup at Southampton but never made a first-team appearance.
Nearing the end of his contract with Southampton, he was approached by MLS who signed him to a 4-year deal before entering him into a weighted lottery that would allocate him to a single participating MLS club. Real Salt Lake were the winners of the lottery and immediately signed him to their roster. On April 28, Davies was traded to FC Dallas for a second round draft pick in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft so RSL could have the room to re-sign Fabián Espíndola. He made his debut for Dallas on June 13, 2009, in a game against Houston Dynamo.
Davies was waived by Dallas on May 5, 2011 and was picked up by Los Angeles Galaxy on May 11, 2011.
Davies was traded to Toronto FC on September 15, 2011 for Dasan Robinson. Davies made his debut as a second half sub for Doneil Henry on October 15 against Philadelphia Union, the game ended in a 1–1 away draw. Davies was waived by Toronto on November 23, 2011.
Davies was signed by Orlando City on April 5, 2012, shoring up the defense for the defending USL Pro champions.
Davies was a captain for the United States Under-20 team during the 2009 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship, starting all five games for the United States in the tournament. The team qualified for the 2009 FIFA Under-20 World Cup taking place in Egypt, where Davies captained the team in the first and last games. He saw limited playing time, however, due to a head injury.
