If Newcastle United have to pay £3.5M for midfield target Mark Davies from Bolton Wanderers – they shouldn’t bother.
Mark Davies - Bolton’s central midfielder
£3.5M is what Newcastle paid to FC Twente for Cheick Tiote a couple of years ago, and he’s a much better player than Mark, and it’s still a mystery to us why Newcastle are even interested in Davies.
Whenever we’ve watched him play for Bolton, he hasn’t looked particularly good, and surely Newcastle can get better players from the continent for a lower fee?
And the fact that Bolton are relegated means they will need to reduce their wage bill, and the Lancashire club are hardly in a strong position for demanding high transfer fees for their players.
And that’s especially true of Mark – whose contract has just one year left to run. and Newcastle could pick the lad up for nothing next summer.
Maybe it’s just us but we don’t rate this player.
Please tell us how you feel about this.
