Davis says he will talk to Anthony Grant about him staying beyond his contract.
Steve Davis has revealed that he is hoping to convince Anthony Grant to remain with the football club beyond the summer. The combative midfielder, who finished runner-up in the player-of-the-year awards to Ben Garratt, is out of contract this summer and would be available on a free transfer but the Alex boss is hoping that Crewe could be in with a chance of re-signing the player.
Grant featured in 47 games during the past season, scoring twice against Leyton Orient and Colchester United and Davis says he will try and convince him to remain in the north.
Davis told the club’s official web-site: “Anthony is in London at the moment and we will give him some time to reflect on things and spend time with his family.
“I will talk with him again to see if he would consider us as one of his options going forward. He is a London boy but I am sure he enjoyed his time here.
“He is 27 now and I am not aware that he wants to return south. All we can do is when the time is right is sit down with him and declare our interest in him staying here. “
