Bolton braced for Big Sam's bid for Davies

Bolton Wanderers are preparing to robustly reject any bids for their captain Kevin Davies amid reports that Blackburn Rovers are keen on the striker.

Last season the 32-year-old enjoyed his best Premier League campaign, scoring 12 goals, and former Wanderers manager Sam Allardyce is reported to be ready to make a £5m bid to take him back to Blackburn.

Allardyce originally brought Davies to the Reebok from Southampton in 2003 and was credited with resurrecting his stuttering career.

He sees the former Chesterfield forward as an ideal replacement for Roque Santa Cruz, who is on the verge of a big money move to Manchester City.

Davies, who endured a frustrating time at Ewood Park in the late 1990s after a £7.5m move from the Saints, only signed a new contract last year and £5m would represent good money for a player approaching the end of his career.

However, Wanderers have no intention of allowing their influential captain to depart.

No bids have yet been made for the player and Bolton intend to reject any approach as they value Davies too highly.
