Birmingham city defender Curtis Davies has said that he is extremely satisfied with the form that the club has shown in the pre-season friendlies so far. The former Aston Villa defender was linked with a move to yet another Midlands rival after it was revealed that Norwich city manager Chris Hughton is a major fan of the former Aston Villa star.

Even though he has not been able to secure a move to the Premier league club this summer, it is thought that he still remains extremely happy with life at Birmingham city. Chris Hughton recently conceded that he is a big fan of Curtis Davies and will go to any length to bring him to Norwich city.

However, Birmingham issued a hands off approach to Norwich by saying that they do not intend to sell the start despite the significant financial troubles they have been facing prior to the start of the new season. Despite the financial problems, they have been extremely good in the pre-season friendlies so far. Their latest pre-season friendly against Borussia Mönchengladbach finished in a 2-2 draw, which was an extremely entertaining contest. Speaking after the match, Davies said that he is surprised and happy at the form shown by the club in the pre-season.

“It was good to have a challenge like Monchengladbach so early. On paper it looked like it was going to be a tough one with it being our first game. I think we did really well. I don’t think you could tell the difference in the level of the two sides and I don’t think you could tell a difference in the fitness. We gave a good account of ourselves. The big thing about this result was the way we played as a team and the fitness,” said Curtis Davies.
