Bolton issue hands-off warning
Bolton have told Swansea that Mark Davies is not for sale after rejecting a £4million bid for the midfielder.
Swans boss Michael Laudrup failed with the bid last week and although the Dane is thought to be preparing a new one, Bolton are determined to keep hold.
The offer fell well short of Bolton's valuation and Trotters boss Owen Coyle says he is confident of fighting off Swansea's interest even if they come back in with a new improved bid.
Laudrup has £15million burning a hole in his pocket following Joe Allen's move to Liverpool but Coyle says it will take a bigger club than Swansea to lure him away.
"They had a fantastic player in Joe Allen who cost Liverpool £15million, and yet they value Mark Davies at £4m, so there seems to have been a miscalculation somewhere, that's for sure," he said.
"I spoke to Mark the other day, being totally open with him, because that's the relationship I've got with my players. I said he'd be the first to know about any bid coming in, and he was.
"I told him very plainly that I see his future as being with Bolton Wanderers right now. Of course, if a Liverpool or a glamour club came in for him, of course his head could be turned, but with all due respect we know we're a big enough club here to be turning down advances to the tune of £4m. There's no doubt in my mind it's way below any valuation."
Davies has a contract at the Reebok Stadium until 2015 and has not asked to leave despite the club's relegation to the Championship.
