Manchester United are reviving their interest in Bolton Wanderers midfielder Mark Davies.

United have been tracking Davies since he quit Wolves to join Bolton two years ago, with manager Sir Alex Ferguson posting Paul Scholes to make regular checks on him.

On the weekend, United chief scout Martin Ferguson was in the stands to see Davies in action against Swansea City.

Trotters boss Owen Coyle has likened Davies to Geordie legend Paul Gascoigne.
