Allardyce Wants Kevin Davies For Rovers!!!

Allardyce Wants Kevin Davies For Rovers!!!

It has emerged that Rovers boss Sam Allardyce is going to test Bolton Wanderers resolve in an attempt to bring Kevin Davies back to Ewood Park.

Allardyce, with a pretty healthy transfer kitty has identified Davies as the answer to Rovers striking problems. He is currently Rovers first choice to replace the recently departerd Roque Santa Cruz.

Bolton will more than likely be unimpressed by their former charge attempting to take Davies and will probably ask for a hefty sum. However as Allardyce is keen, it is possible that there is something that he knows that we currently do not with regards to Davies' situation at Bolton.

Undoubtedly there will be some contrasting views over this idea, with Davies' prior spell at Rovers but it is worth noting that he is the best English player of his style - a big, honest target man and has been very close to a few England Squads recently, under Capello.

This potential transfer does not preclude Di Santo and intimates that Allardyce is considering 2 front players next season or that he could use Davies 'wide' in a 4-3-3 in the way Bolton often do.

You heard it here first folks!

This window gets weirder! This will be a contentious signing if its pulled off but the Davies playing for Bolton is a totally different player than the one that played under Brian Kidd and the relegated Rovers team of 1999. Interesting.

I can understand the resistance to this, I am hesitant myself but for the right price, you cannot deny this would b a good buy. No more than 2 million and i'd be relatively happy.

If you appoint a manager like Allardyce this is the sort of transfer target you can expect...
