Bruce: Hull captain Davies going nowhere

Hull City manager Steve Bruce has confirmed that there are no plans to allow Curtis Davies to leave the KC Stadium ahead of the new season, reports Sky Sports.

Davies is reported to be on the radar of Crystal Palace after they failed in a bid to land Tottenham’s Michael Dawson, himself also reported to be a Hull transfer target. Other Premier League clubs such as north east pair Sunderland and Newcastle United, as well as Everton, have also been linked with the 29-year-old’s services.

However, Tigers boss Bruce has moved quickly to put the dampeners on any expectations of a big money move, insisting: “Curtis won’t be going anywhere. He’s under contract here. No matter what happens, he’ll be with us when the season gets underway, that’s for sure.”

Davies moved to Hull last summer from Birmingham City and proved an instant hit on Humberside. Davies assumed the captaincy, missed only one Premier League match, and also lead the club to their first ever FA Cup final, which they lost narrowly to Arsenal.

He is also one of the few players in the Tigers squad with previous Europa League experience from his time with Birmingham and Aston Villa.

Davies, who played the second half of Hull’s hard-fought 2-0 friendly win over League 2 side York City yesterday, recently expressed his disappointment that he had not been offered a new contract after his 2013/14 heroics. But with two years remaining on his current deal and Bruce’s unwillingness to let him go, it seems he will remain a Tiger for the time being.
