Fulham midfielder Sean Davis says he is back in love with Fulham and any talk of a move is behind him. The midfielder asked to leave in the summer and would have completed a £5.5million move to Everton in August if he had not injured his knee in pre-season.

Manager Chris Coleman convinced Davis to stay last month by spelling out Fulham’s ambitions but the former England Under-21 international has avoided the spotlight since then and knuckled down.

His first priority was to demonstrate his commitment to supporters who were upset by his transfer request. His goal in the 2-1 win over Bolton was his second in four appearances since recovering from injury.

He said: “At the beginning of the season I got a bit disillusioned about the way the club was going but things are good now. I have put that episode well and truly behind me. The manager, the staff and all the players have all backed me and that has helped me come through.

“I am in talks with the club about a new contract. Hopefully we can sort something out and I will put pen to paper. I am willing to knuckle down and work my socks off for the manager, the fans and the other players. I feel that my fitness is up there but I have not been that pleased with my performances. I need to play better and get on the ball more.”

Coleman said: “I am sure in the next few games we will start to see the best of him. His mind is right now and he is putting a shift in for the team. Everton’s loss could be our gain.”
