Former Bolton man not planning to reunite with talismanic striker.
New Wigan Athletic manager Owen Coyle has ruled himself out of making a move for veteran striker Kevin Davies this summer following the player’s release from Bolton Wanderers, Sky Sports reports.
The pair were together for a short time at The Reebok stadium, but Coyls has distanced himself from reports of a reunion, but admits that he still has the utmost respect for the one-cap England man.
“Kevin was my skipper and an outstanding player,” said Coyle. “It would be remiss of me to mention individual players but he is a good lad.
“I think there is a bit of interest in Kevin but it is probably not what we are looking to bring into the football club although he is an outstanding man.”
However, Coyle has confessed that he is acutely aware of the club’s situation in regards to players coming and going and knows that he may face losing a number of stars before the season kicks off in August.
The like’s of James McCarthy, and forwards Callum McManaman and Arouna Kone have already been linked with a move away whilst defender Maynor Figueroa has already joined Hull City.
“We don’t, as a football club, want to sell anybody or have to sell anybody but we understand how football works and when you have got very talented players there will always be interest. That just goes part and parcel with the game,” he added.
