Davies wants out.

Davies wants out.

You'd think that during an FA Cup week the big news would have been made on the field.

But the story that has drawn most interest has been the news Mark Davies has has rejected a new contract and handed in a transfer request.

A product of the Wolves academy and hailed as the brightest prospect since Robbie Keane, Davies has spent a majority of the last 4 years out injured.

His entire four season record in gold and black is 15 starts, 20 appearances as sub, yielding two goals.

He's made almost half as many starts for Leicester this season on loan as he has in 48 months as a Wolves player, and matched his goal tally, drawing plaudits from everyone that has seen him play at The Walkers in the process, with comparisons of Sparky in flight to a young Joe Cole being regularly made by Leicester's fans.

So what's left to be said about the now inevetable departure of player nurtured, supported, and developed at the club he supports?

First off, £650k is an insulting offer for a player of his undoubted talents.

But it now would seem obvious that was made in the knowledge that as far as the player was concerned, it wasn't a hostile bid.

So where has it gone wrong?

The club stance is that Sparky is, and has always been an iintegral part of their plans for the future.

Has he simply got tired of waiting to be given the opportunities he evidently feels he has earned?

Given his injury record that would seem purile, but in his defence, there was a time at the start of the campaign when he was raring to go, and still couldn't make it on to the pitch, not even from the bench.

Whatever the reason, We're sure it will come out as soon as he is settled elsewhere.

All that remains to be seen is whether he gets there with the fans best wishes, or whether his legacy will be on of having bitten the hand that fed his rise to greater things.
