Davis ready to fight for Southampton place

Southampton goalkeeper Kelvin Davis is staying calm over their interest in Birmingham City youngster Jack Butland.

Davis will not be looking to up sticks if he is faced with added competition for places.

He said: "I'd like to think if there is something I see or a bit of advice I can give (to a rival), I would let them know if I thought they'd accept it. I am not too long in the tooth to accept a bit of criticism or help. I'm all for that.

"I think you'll find with most goalkeepers, and I say most, the case is there is a good team spirit and I am all for that goalkeepers' union. I am a big believer that you train as well as you can and you reach the standard that is your best possible.

"If that is not good enough to get you in the team, then so be it and good luck to the other guy. I've always been the same. As a goalkeeper there is one position, one shirt, and if I'm good enough then that's football.

"I'll support the club and will continue to do so while I'm here."
