Coleman plays down Davis exit
Davis could be on his way to Everton
Fulham manager Chris Coleman has insisted that midfielder Sean Davis will not leave the club unless the player hands in a written transfer request.

The Cottagers have already rejected a bid from Everton for the highly-rated 23-year-old and have put a 7m price-tag on his head.

"Unless he refuses to play for us any longer and puts in a request to leave in writing then as far as I'm concerned he's staying," said Coelman.

"I understand his ambition to join a bigger club in the future.

"But I also do not believe that the speculation is getting to him, judging by the way he's been training in pre-season.


"Sean wants to be informed of any new bids that come in for him but that's all."

Everton must now decide whether to revise their offer for Davis or turn their attention elsewhere.

It had been reported that Everton's offer for Davis was initially 3.5m rising to 5m in instalments.

Toffees' boss David Moyes had been interested in signing Charlton midfielder Scott Parker.

But it looks like a summer move for him has also been scuppered after Parker signed a five-year deal with the Addicks.
