One report on Wednesday stated Davis was being interviewed for a second time by the powers that be at the Black Country club.

It came as the Birmingham-born boss - a boyhood Wolves fan - became the bookies' odds-on favourite for the managerial vacancy at Molineux.

But, despite the heavy speculation, Davis has heard no word of any Wolves approach from Crewe chairman John Bowler.

"We have a relationship I trust and an understanding that if there were anything of interest to tell me about, the chairman would do so," Davis told the Express & Star.

"I have not heard a thing from him so I have nothing to discuss."

In his 18 months as Crewe boss, Davis has led the club to promotion via the League Two play-off final, returned to Wembley to lift the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and kept the club in League One with a commendable 13th-placed finish.

Wolves' search for a new head coach following the sacking of Dean Saunders has stepped up a gear this week with the return of chief executive Jez Moxey after a short break.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
