Boss says the door is always open to Max Clayton
Steve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that the club would always leave the door open for Max Clayton if he cannot resolve his future this summer. The England Youth International is currently on trial at Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers after enjoying a similar arrangement at Sunderland.
Wolves boss Kenny Jackett spoke to his Crewe counterpart to kindly inform us that Clayton would be training with them but Davis has revealed that no dialogue between the two clubs has taken place since. Crewe are understandably keeping their distance as Clayton is out of contract and free to do as he pleases, but due to him being under the age of 24, Crewe Alexandra are entitled to compensation for bringing him through the Academy structure and into their first-team.
Steve told the club’s official web-site: “Max is at Wolves and Kenny rang to say they were taking a look at him. There is no time scale on it and at the moment they are just allowing him to train there.
“I haven’t heard anything else from Wolves, Max or his agent. All we can do is wait and see. I haven’t got involved and we would only get involved if a decision is made on him further down the line.
“We hope it works out for him but if it doesn’t then the door is open for him here. We will always welcome him because he has been at this club for a long time and is one of our Academy graduates.”
