Portsmouth are ready to bid £2m for Tottenham midfielder Sean Davis but face competition from Middlesbrough, Everton and Fulham.

Davis was a firm fan’s favourite at Fulham and the Londoners have been linked on a number of occasions to moves for the midfielder but a price tag of £2m may be too high for Fulham manager Chris Coleman’s purse.

The former England U21 international has made just one appearance for Martin Jol’s men this season – as a second half substitute in the Carling Cup defeat at Grimsby.

Recently Davis was quoted as saying;
“I want to try and play for Tottenham’s first team but if that’s not the case then I’m going to have to consider going on loan or a permanent move to another side.

“There is an embarassment of quality players in the reserve team. The likes of myself, Pedro Mendes and Anthony Gardner are not getting a game and I don’t know how much longer you can wait for your chance.

“Most of us are used to playing week in, week out. When you’re not it’s hard to take.

“When you’re not making an 18 or 20-man squad it can be a bit depressing – but you can’t sulk. You have to keep working hard and be professional.

“I did have the chance to go to a few teams at the beginning of the season but felt I wanted to prove myself at Tottenham.

“But I haven’t been given a chance to prove myself and I am definitely looking to go out on loan or a permanent move.

“I’m not one of those players who can just sit on the bench and get 10 minutes here or there. I want to play week in, week out – that’s what I’m used to.

“I’ve no regrets about leaving Fulham. It was because I felt I was getting a bit stale and had been there 10 years but sometimes the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

“There’s a lot of quality players in the Spurs squad who might not be part of the manager’s future plans. If it’s not going to work out at Tottenham I would like to play first-team football somewhere else in the Premiership.

“The team are doing so well it’s not like I can go the manager and say ‘Why aren’t I playing?'”
