Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis can't hide they're likely to lose Nick Powell after today's promotion playoff final.

Davis is hoping Powell can continue the form that has reportedly led to Manchester United having a £4m bid accepted, with Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal also showing interest. The 18-year-old attacking midfielder returned an impressive 14 goals in 33 league starts, though Davis denies that Sir Alex Ferguson has sealed any deal.

"At the moment it's just speculation," he said. "There has been no solid offer from anybody. Nothing will be happening until Sunday's out of the way. Maybe next week we'll know a little bit more."
