Whilst other sites are reporting that West Brom defender, Curtis Davies is staying at the club, I have a different take on his comments.
'Naturally, I want to play for England one day and I enjoyed immensely the experience of playing in The Premiership last season, competing against the likes of Thierry Henry and Ruud van Nistelrooy, even though I'd look at pictures of the games afterwards and think to myself that my face must have been superimposed,'
'But when people ask me, 'Are you going to Arsenal?' I take it in my stride.
'I get a confidence boost to be linked with those clubs but I don't get carried away about it.
'I'm a West Brom player and if nothing else happens, I'm very happy to play my football here in The Championship this coming season.
For me it's the 'if nothing else happens' comment that betrays him a little. It's a comment of a player who wants to move on to bigger and better things (like the Emirates perhaps?) like a player who wants to better himself and further his career. But also the comments of a player who doesn't want to upset the West Brom faithful in case he doesn't end up going anywhere.
He may move to the Gunners, he may move elsewhere, but I firmly believe the player is looking to play in the top flight next season.
