Dougie on Davies rumor: "This could have been some 12 year old Wolves fan tweeting”

Charlie Crowhurst

Craig Davies has been at Bolton Wanderers for just six months. The Trotters signed the striker from Barnsley in January for a fee reported to be between £200,000 and £300,000. Earlier this week, a rumor emerged that Wolverhampton Wanderers, a club that Davies had spent time on loan at when he was younger, had come in with a bid for the front man. Various reports had placed Wolves' bid at the £400,000 mark for the man that scored 13 goals in all competitions last season, including four goals for Bolton.

The club had been quiet on the whole thing, not denying or confirming the bid in any way. That is until earlier today when Dougie Freedman, who as we know does not like to pull any punches, came out and denied the bid. Speaking briefly in a BBC Radio Manchester interview, the manager weighed in on the rumor:

"I have heard nothing, nobody's contacted me from Wolves. As far as I'm concerned, I'd like Craig to stay here.

"This could have been some 12 year old Wolves fan tweeting."

Davies spent the 2006-07 season on loan at Wolverhampton, away from his parent club at the time, Hellas Verona in Italy's Serie B. Davies made 23 appearances at Molineux but did not score in the league. He managed two goals in the FA Cup, both coming against Oldham Athletic in a 2-2 third round match and the following replay. Davies moved to Oldham that summer.
