Southampton set to land Middlesbrough's Davies

Southampton are new favourites for Middlesbrough defender Andrew Davies.

The Mirror says Saints chief George Burley has beaten off opposition from Hull and Norwich for the England Under-21 defender, who can leave Boro.

Burley needs more strength in defence, where Davies can also play right-back, and hopes he will agree terms today.

Hull were willing to pay £1million for Davies after a loan spell but the player chose Saints.
