Reebok Stadium striker going nowhere.
Sky Sports understands that Bolton skipper Kevin Davies is poised to agree a new contract at the Reebok Stadium, snubbing a move to Sunderland.
The 34-year-old’s current contract is due to expire at the end of the season, and he has been linked with a move away from the club.
The Black Cats had been increasingly confident of persuading Davies to make the move to the North East, however, Sky Sports understands that he now looks set to agree a new contract with Bolton following talks.
Sunderland had been willing to offer Davies an 18-month deal, but Bolton are happy to offer a deal of similar length to their veteran striker.

Having racked up over 350 Bolton appearances it did seem that the former Blackburn Rovers man was looking at leaving the Reebok Stadium but it seems that Kevin Davies will stick with Bolton, despite seeing his first team chances limited in recent weeks with Owen Coyle opting to plump for David N’Gog as his main attacking weapon.
Martin O’Neill has confirmed his interest in the England international but may have to look elsewhere to boost his Black Cats attacking options.
Davies joined Bolton in the summer of 2003 and has been a virtual ever present since. This is his ninth season at the club but has failed to start any of the past six Premier League fixtures.
