Boss says he is having to plan with his young forward
Steve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that there has been no major development concerning his young forward Max Clayton but he fears he could lose him this summer. Crewe Alexandra are determined to try and get the talented 19 year-old to extend his stay at the club and the offer for him to continue to train with us remains very much in place.
Clayton has continued to train hard in the closed season, attending sessions to work on his fitness and conditioning.
With his current deal set to expire this summer, Clayton is free to ‘look elsewhere’ and Davis appreciates that he and his representatives will be assessing their options. In the meantime, the Crewe Alexandra boss will continue his search for reinforcements in his attack with Clayton’s future still in doubt and Byron Moore and AJ Leitch-Smith moving on this summer.
Steve told crewealex.net: “It remains a delicate situation with Max. I would think he is trying his luck elsewhere.
“I haven’t spoken to him or his agent in detail about it and he wasn’t in yesterday. It has been a bit quiet but we can only hope that it can be resolved in one way or another as soon as possible.
“As the manager I have got to do what is best for Crewe Alexandra and that means I’m having to look to plan without him. I have to look forward.
“If Max decides to stay then that’s great but in the meantime I may get a replacement in and then there is further competition for places.”
