DAVIES FU­TURE IS UP IN THE AIR

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

BOLTON’S long-serv­ing striker Kevin Davies will con­sider his op­tions again at the end of the sea­son af­ter scrap­ping a move to Toronto FC.

Davies, 36, had looked poised to seal a move to the MLS club when Bolton agreed to pay part of his wages un­til his con­tract at the Ree­bok Sta­dium was due to of­fi­cially end on June 30.

But Davies will now bide his time be­fore mak­ing a de­ci­sion on his fu­ture af­ter it emerged that con­trac­tual prob­lems made him pull the plug on a move to Canada.

He said: “It has been a com­plete roller­coaster since first speak­ing with Ryan Nelsen (the Toronto FC coach) on April 18. As it stands I will not be leav­ing for Toronto , as re­ported.

"My young fam­ily and I were nat­u­rally very ex­cited about the op­por­tu­nity of go­ing to Toronto on a short-term deal but af­ter le­gal ad­vice we felt that cer­tain ob­sta­cles put in our way were too large to over­come.

“I will fin­ish the sea­son here and con­tinue with my high stan­dards as a pro­fes­sional. I will be ready if the man­ager needs me and, hope­fully, have a part to play in help­ing the club re­turn to the Pre­mier League.”
