Bryan Robson confirmed today that Albion had turned down an offer of £3.5 million for defender Curtis Davies from Tottenham Hotspur.
The bid from Spurs has been met with a firm answer of no from Albion who have said that the defender is not for sale and especially at £3.5 million.
Davies would do well to look at another promising young defender who joined Spurs and what happened to him. Calum Davenport joined Spurs from Coventry City and has not had much first team football at White Hart Lane.
Davenport has been shipped out on loan to West Ham and Southampton during his time at Spurs and hasn't set the world a light.
I think the fact that Robson has made this bid public knowledge a bidding war for the defenders services could start. Arsenal, Liverpool and Newcastle have all been mentioned in the past and I think an offer more towards £6-£8 million could push Albion to sell.
Zoltan Gera has also been the subject of a bid from Wigan Athletic but Albion laughed off the £1.75 million bid and have said that it would take a hell of a lot more to make us sell.
The message from the club is simple, unless silly money is being talked about the answer is, 'We don't need to sell - and we don't intend to.'
So come on show us the money if you want our players.
