Bournemouth eyeing up Championship defender in £3million deal

Curtis Davies The Bournemouth regulars in the Transfer Tavern are pleased to hear that Cherries boss, Eddie Howe, is intending to strengthen the defence as soon as the transfer window arrives.

According to reports from the Mirror, the first name on the Bournemouth boss’ list come January is Hull City’s Curtis Davies.

Eddie Howe is keen to reinforce Bournemouth’s defence to avoid an instant return to the Championship and firmly believes that Curtis Davies is an ideal signing and the deal would be approximately £3m.

The 30-year-old centre half is out of contract in the summer and Howe has named Davies as his top target when the window opens.

Davies was axed during the final few months of last season after a slump in form as the Tigers lost their battle to avoid the costly relegation drop to the second-tier.

Despite showing a return to his best this season, the former England U21 international is no longer captain at Hull City and has concerns over his future at the KC Stadium with his contract set to run out soon.

The 6 ft 2 defender has made 70 appearances for the Tigers since joining them from Birmingham in 2013 and with a vast amount of experience at different clubs, it’s easy to see why Eddie Howe is keen to secure his services.
