Bolton boss Owen Coyle has reiterated his desire to keep hold of Kevin Davies - but admits the situation ultimately depends on the Wanderers striker himself.

After it emerged at the weekend that Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill had made an enquiry about Davies, the Northern Irishman on Monday revealed that he has followed it up with a bid which has been rejected.

Coyle conceded the 34-year-old - who is out of contract in the summer and has lost his place in the Wanderers first XI this season - could go if he indicates that he wants to leave, but said: "It (a bid) won't change my outlook."
