Davis bid rejected

Wednesday 9 July 2003

Speaking exclusively to fulhamfc.com at Motspur Park this morning, CEO Bruce Langham confirmed that Fulham had yesterday received a formal offer from Everton for midfielder Sean Davis. However Fulham's response was immediate and conclusive and cast no doubts over the Club's intentions to keep the player.

"We received a £3.5m offer from Everton yesterday afternoon which we turned down immediately," said Langham.

"Our evaluation of the player is at least double that, however even with that valuation Sean Davis is not a player we would want to sell anyway. As I have said before, the Club wants to hang on to its best players and as such, offers like the one we had yesterday for Sean are unwelcome. However, as I said before, if any player makes it clear that he wants to leave the Club that puts us in a very different position."

Davis, who still has two years left on his Fulham contract, is currently away with the team at a pre-season training camp in Devon.
