Fulham boss Chris Coleman targets bringing ex-Fulham midfielder Davis back from White Hart Lane.

Coleman feels Davis could fit in alongside Papa Bouba Diop in Fulham’s midfield.

“Sean can hold or push, just like Bouba,” explained Coleman. “Sean has good legs and is incredibly fit so I don’t think that would be a problem.

“If the situation arose that Sean wanted to rejoin us and we could afford it, then we’d want him. We want good players and Sean is a good player.

“Sean is a Fulham boy. If he did sign, then it wouldn’t take long for him to win the supporters around – just a few performances.”

“I said to Sean he shouldn’t leave but he wouldn’t have it and he wouldn’t listen to me,” said the former Wales international.

“Sean was the boy at Fulham. He went to Tottenham and found it difficult to break into the side, not because he’s not good enough – he can match anyone there in my view – but because sometimes things don’t work out. When you’re the top man and a big favourite and want to move up, it doesn’t always work out. The jersey can get heavier at other clubs and players have to take that into consideration. Sean wants to play football but he is not playing regularly.

Davis has attracted interest from several Premiership clubs.
