Curtis Davies Deal 'Fairly Certain'

Curtis Davies Deal 'Fairly Certain'

West Bromwich Albion Chairman Jeremy Pearce has explained the season long loan deal of Curtis Davies to Aston Villa was done - instead of a direct sale - for accountanting and not football reasons.

The 22-year-old defender will be joining Villa in the summer for a feel of £8.5million.

'Curtis will go next July 1, we can say that with a fair degree of certainty. That was a decision made for financial structuring rather than a footballing one.'

'Fair degree of certainty'? Does that mean we can change our minds still if we want? Sounds like it doesn't it?

Pearce said his fairwells to Davies by fining him a weeks wages after he refused to play for the Baggies!

No bad thing I don't suppose, if we do still have the option of saying we don't want him. MON has got a season to evaluate him now.

I'm delighted that the West Bromwich Albion Chairman Jeremy Pearce has taken the time to clarify this somewhat 'strange and secretive deal', because the silence coming from inside of Villa Park as to the why's and wherefores was deafening. Interesting to read that Mr Pearce is now saying that the deal will be completed on July 1st 2008 'with a fair degree of certainty'. I was under the impression that it was already a 100% done deal. Obviously not.

'Fair degree of certainity' means it's done. I don't suppose it was MON's place to say. WBA did this with their keeper at Man U and seem to adopt a ploy of fiddling/creative accounting.

I'd imagine if we wanted to pull out we could but the player could never really return to the Baggies, so they won't pull out. He'll be ours I'm sure he'll be good for us!

Oh, I think he'll be good for us, I have no doubts on that score, I just expect other clubs to move in and attempt to lure him away.
