No moves for Bolton's Liverpool target Davies or Bogdan and Lee

Bolton boss Owen Coyle has made it clear that no clubs have made any offers for Mark Davies.

The 24-year old midfielder has emerged as a target for Liverpool this summer but Coyle says that there has been absolutely no contact in regards to the players availability.

"I can tell you there's been absolutely no phone calls, no dialogue, nothing about Mark Davies," he said.

"It's the usual paper speculation and conjecture.

"If anybody out there thinks any of our players will be leaving on a whim then they're sadly mistaken."

And Coyle added that Bolton were not about to offload key players such as goalkeeper Adam Bogdan and Korean winger Lee Chung-yong who have also been linked with summer departures.

"Since I came in and inherited that squad, when they were second-bottom of the league and everything else, we've had to patch things up year-by-year because there were players who were on long-term contracts and big money that we couldn't move on," he added.

"We've now got young players that we've tied up on long-term contracts because that's the future of the club. That'll move us on and take us back to the Premier League, I believe.

"Mark Davies, Adam Bogdan and Lee Chung-yong - these are all lads that I've tied up on long-term contracts and we did that because we want them at the football club, to be the nucleus of the team that drives us forward.

"So I can assure you, as far as I'm concerned and the chairman and the owner know my feelings, those players are scheduled to be with us for next season and are looking to get back to the Premier League."
