Cardiff City and Nottingham Forest are considering making a move for Birmingham City’s David Davis according to a report from the Daily Mail.
The 25-year-old midfielder had been out of favour when Gary Rowett was the head coach but he has prospered since he left and Gianfranco Zola replaced him. He was been able to have a run in the first team and his new boss has been very happy with these performances.
However the current problem for Birmingham is Davis’ current contract situation. His current deal is set to expire at the end of the season and while new talks have been initiated, they are currently at a standstill for reasons which are currently unknown. And if Davis is unlikely to sign a new deal by the end of the season, Birmingham would be looking to cash in during the January transfer window to make sure they don’t lose the player on a free transfer.
And with Davis most likely being available for a cut priced deal if he was to be sold this January, two of Birmingham’s Sky Bet Championship rivals have been alerted that a bargain could be available soon. Cardiff City head coach Neil Warnock is looking to shape the squad in his image so he can save them from relegation while Nottingham Forest are currently eyeing players with their star midfielder Henri Lansbury looking likely to leave after bids from Aston Villa and Derby County were made for him.
It means Davis now has a lot of choices on the table which could help him get a better deal with Birmingham should he want to stay at St Andrews.
