'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sparky Trotting off?

The Daily Mail are claiming that Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson has made an audacious 650,000 bid for 20 year old Mark Davies, currently on loan to Leicester City.

It is no coincidence that former Wolves Academy boss Chris Evans is Megsons right hand man, and is best placed to give an asessment on his talents.

Once proclaimed the most skilllful player at the club by Glenn Hoddle, Mark has suffered an injury ravaged career since breaking into the first team during Wolves first season back in The Championship that has seen him sidelined for a vast majority of the ensuing years.

Currently turning heads as a temporary Fox, he is still a huge fans favourite, with most hoping for a return to first team action at Molineux when the loan expires at the end of the month.

But with his contract up in the summer, might the club be tempted to recoup a little of the cash invested in the former academy star who could walk away for a nominal fee in the summer?

We'd like to think not, and Mick McCarthy has always mainained he's part of his plans, but there has been little evidence of it in his team selections.

A goalscoring cameo in the League Cup being about it.

If the signing of Nigel Quashie caused uproar, the sale of Sparky is likely to send many fans into meltdown.

It would be a crying shame if Wolves never got to see the realisation of Sparky's potential before he flew the nest, particularly if that meant losing him to Bolton.

Nooo! Get lost Megson, we want him!

Not strange that Chris Evans is suggesting Megson look at him. That doesn't mean we are about to sell him though. I'm sure MM realises the talent Davies has and won't want to lose him that easily. Mick was wise in loaning him to Leicester. He is getting experience in a very good side, playing alongside players who give a good yardstick to judge him against. From what I can see he is passing every test, playing well and above all, staying fit. I hope we see him in our side soon, we have certainly lacked the creativity a player like Sparky can offer.

Looks like MD already had his mind set on a move
