Curtis Davies has spent most of his career playing
Curtis Davies has spent most of his career playing in the midlands for clubs like Aston Villa and West Brom.
However, he is now going through his least successful spell in his career with Hull City and there are rumours that he could soon end his stay with the Championship club once and for all. After the relegation into the second division of English football, Hull are finding it increasingly difficult to keep hold of their star players. Davies may be a star name on paper but he has not been one of the untouchables in Steve Bruce’s team sheet.
There are intense rumours that Premier League minnows Bournemouth would come in with an offer in the upcoming January transfer window for the defender, who is valued at around £ 3 million. Bournemouth are eyeing up the deal since they see this as a great opportunity to get an experienced player on a cheap. Davies is out of contract in the summer and Hull would rather cash innow rather than allow him to leave on a free transfer. Bournemouth find themselves in the relegation zone after 13 matches in the league and one of the reasons has been the poor defensive record.
The club has conceded 27 goals already and Eddie Howe has reportedly identified Davis as the stopgap. Further, signing the 30-year-old will also protect the club from a financial meltdown should they return to the Championship after just one season in the top division. Davies did not feature for Hull in the last three months of last campaign. He was made as a scapegoat for the club’s relegation into the Championship. Even though he has been in great form this season, he has been recently replaced by former Tottenham defender Michael Dawson. Davies came to Hull for £ 2.25 million.
