Fulham midfielder Sean Davis, who handed in a transfer request at the start of the season, has insisted he is happy to stay at the club.

Davis was set for a £5.5m move to Everton during the summer but the move collapsed when he suffered an injury.

But the 24-year-old is much happier now after forcing his way back into a side currently ninth in the table.

“I’m happy at the moment and I think the club are making big strides forward,” Davis told Football Focus.

“If the club are doing well and are in the spotlight and we are competing for cups and trying to finish in the top eight, that’s definitely a progression.”

Davis said the decision to return to Craven Cottage from the start of next season has played a big role in his wish to stay at the club.

He said: “The biggest thing for me was probably going back to Craven Cottage next season.

“I feel every club should have their own pitch and own stands. The chairman is pushing for that so hopefully that will happen next season.”

Fulham face Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Saturday, and Davis is confident of beating the Premiership champions for the second time this season.

He said: “We’ve had some good results against United. They’re a great side, one of the best sides in Europe, so it’s going to be tough going to Old Trafford again.

“But there’s not much pressure on our shoulders so we’re going to try and enjoy the game and get something out of it.”
