Davis Would Like Experienced Centre-Half

14 May 2015

Boss says he would like an experienced old head to assist his young defenders

Steve Davis says that tying up defenders Jon Guthrie, Harry Davis and George Ray does not mean that he is content with his options at centre-half.

The Alex boss has told the club’s official web-site that he would be interested in signing an experienced centre-back this summer. That has not ruled out a possible move for Swansea ace Alan Tate either, who impressed during a successful loan spell. Tate’s great experience certainly helped Crewe adapt to a three-at-the-back system and he also showed his versatility by stepping into the midfield anchor role when needed.

Steve told “Although we have signed George and Harry on longer contracts and have taken the extra option on Jon, that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be in the market for another centre-back.

“I see Jon’s future as a centre-half rather than as a left-back, but I would like another experienced centre-half if the right one is available. I think that could make a difference to us, like it did when Tatey came in last season.”
