Stoke Deny Davies Desire

Despite Stoke manager Tony Pulis denying any contact has been made with Aston Villa with regards to the obvious availability of  centre-back Curtis Davies, the Potters are still thought to be keen to add the 25-year-old to his defensive ranks. It is thought that Davies is keen on a move to Stoke ahead of a return to Leicester as well as links to clubs such as Wolves and Werder Bremen. However, it seems Stoke are unwilling to do business unless they can offload one of their centre-backs in the window, in which case they may well make a formal offer for the ex-West Brom man. Robert Huth was linked with a move to Liverpool earlier in the month but played down talks and the German is unlikely to be one of those that the club would be willing to offload. It remains to be seen whether Davies has a future under Gerard Houllier since returning from his loan spell with Leicester but it is public knowledge that as it stands, Villa are willing to listen to any offers on a defender who has slipped way down the pecking order at Villa Park in unceremonious fashion since a shoulder injury at the beginning of last season. Do you think the club have been somewhat unfair to Davies, who at one stage was tipped to break into the England set-up after a decent run at the club? How do you rate him in terms of our other centre-halves?

  2. To Stoke fans,you dont want Davis i saw him while he was at Leicester 4 times and like the vast majority of Leicester supporters were happy he went back.
    He believes his own and agents hype about himself,
    Can,t mark
    Can,t Tackle
    can,t head a ball
    West Brom dont want him back for a quarter of what they sold him for.
    Save your money Stoke
