Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis denies that Arsenal target Max Clayton will leave the club.

Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis has denied claims that Arsenal have made an offer for Max Clayton.

The 18-year-old, who has scored four goals this season, is understood to have attracted the interest of a host of Premier League clubs. However, Davis has moved to play down suggestions of an offer from the Gunners.

"I've had no enquiries about Max, only people watching, along with a lot of our other players, so it's only a rumour," he told talkSPORT.

"He's not ready to go anywhere. He's just finding his feet with us at the moment. He's got a bit to learn yet before he leaves this football club.

"When the situation is right he will leave to go in somebody's first-team. There is no real point him going and playing into a development group when he's playing regularly here. This is the best education he can get."

Crewe currently sit 19th in the League One table.
