Curtis Davies: Linked with move to Everton

Curtis Davies: Linked with move to Everton

The 28-year-old has been in excellent form for the Tigers since his summer switch from Birmingham City, prompting suggestions that a call-up for the England squad may be deserved.

Fifth-placed Everton have been linked with a move for Davies upon the opening of next month's transfer window, but Bruce says he is unaware of any interest so far.

"It's the first I've heard of it," he told the Hull Daily Mail.

"There's going to be speculation about any player that's doing well and Curtis is doing well.

"I don't even have to bother with my owner with £6million. We don't want to lose our good players and that wouldn't even tempt us.

"I wouldn't even have to ask the question on it and that's the strength we've got."

Davies has impressed since his move to Humberside, helping Hull to a positive top-flight return, and Bruce admits it would be foolish to let him leave for the fee reported.

"We all realise how important Curtis has been to us and for anyone to sell their best players now it would have to be at a premium which would blow us away," he said.

"That wouldn't even scratch the surface.

"Where could I replace Curtis Davies in January for that amount? The last thing I want to do is dismantle a squad I'm trying to put together.

"I'm not naive enough to think every player hasn't got a price but not at that sort of money."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
