Davies was linked to a move to Arsenal on transfer deadline day and reports suggested that Albion had turned down a £3 million offer for his services.
It is no surprise that the defender is being linked with a move to a club like Arsenal as the young defender has been a revelation since his August move from Luton Town.
Davies is an important part of Bryan Robson's plans. Robson has Davies lined up for the captaincy next season and it would be a major blow to Albion if they were to lose their promising defender.
Davies dismissed the rumours in an interview with the Sunday Mercury, Davies said, 'There are always little whispers, with teams throwing their name into the hat to try and unsettle me.
'I don't take any notice of the rumours. I'm happy at Albion and I've only been here for six months. I'm just happy to play my football.”
With Albion struggling to avoid the drop the threat of relegation is becoming more of a possibility after the last two poor results. Davies will be a wanted man if we go down and I am hoping that the club take the same stance that Crystal Palace did with Andy Johnson.
We bought Davies for £3 million and for a player unknown to anyone in the top flight it was a gamble. Lucky for us it turned out to be a gamble that paid off, Davies has been a positive in an otherwise negative season so far and has captained the side on a couple of occasions. For a player of 20-years-old to show the composure and maturity to captain a premiership side he must be one hell of a player.
Davies has doubled his value as far as I am concerned, we would be stupid to let him go. He is under contract and should not be sold for anything less than £6 million. Why would we need to sell him, we don't need the money do we Jeremy?
Take the same stance as Palace and tell any potential buyers that he isn't going anywhere. We gave Curtis Davies a chance in the premiership when no-one else would gamble and it would be good to see a bit of loyalty from a player, something not seen in football anymore.
We need to resist all offers for him, he is the future of this club and hopefully we will not be put in the position of having to sell. We need to stay up and we need to move on, if we were to go down this season we would be going back three years and undoing a lot of hard work, last season would have been all for nothing.
