Pilkington left Old Trafford two years ago, having made six first team appearances for the Premiership champions.
However, his bid to establish himself as Port Vale's first choice stopper was hampered by a broken leg that saw him spend a large part of last season on the sidelines, and he released by Vale at the start of the summer.
Davenport has been seeking cover between the posts, knowing that Lee Martin will be suspended at the start of next season, and Pilkington has joined the club for pre-season training.
