Steve Davis remains hopeful that his influential midfielder Luke Murphy will sign a new deal in due course. Davis has not put a time scale on the Alsager-based midfield man signing a new deal with the club to take him through to the summer of 2014 but he hopes it will be concluded sooner rather than later.
Steve Davis told crewealex.net: “Some players need longer to think about it than others. I have not pushed him (Murphy).
“We can't let it go on and on, but he is under 24 and there would be compensation involved if it does drag on. I don’t think it will.
“I think there will be a time in the not too distant future when he will come back to me and it will be sorted out.”
