Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle plays down speculation linking Kevin Davies with a move to West Ham United.

Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle has denied speculation linking Kevin Davies with a move to West Ham United.

Recent reports had suggested that the Trotters boss had spoken to West Ham manager Sam Allardyce about a potential deal for the out-of-favour striker.

"Kevin Davies is my captain and a big part of our plans, as he always has been," said Coyle. "Aside from his footballing abilities, Kevin is an outstanding man.

"He is a leader and a bit of speculation doesn't change that.

"There is nothing factual in the West Ham link. I have had no dialogue with Sam."

Davies has made over 300 appearances for Bolton since his move from Southampton in 2003.
