WREXHAM are reported to have turned down a substantial five-figure bid from Bangor City for defender Jordan Davies, who recently returned to his parent club from a loan spell at Nantporth.
The Coedpoeth-born 18-year-old graduated through the youth ranks at Wrexham and was capped by Wales at Under-17 level. A second-year scholar, he was promoted to the first team squad at the Racecourse before being loaned out, but said last month that he was relishing his return.
“With being in the last year of my scholarship it is good to be pushing on with the first team and training with them every day,” Davies told the Leader. "That has obviously helped my game a lot as well, it has been really good.
“At least the gaffer [Dean Keates] is handing out chances to people. When I get back I will push that bit harder because hopefully I will get a chance.”
Davies made 14 Welsh Premier appearances for City during his loan spell, scoring once.
Sky football reporter Bryn Law, a former president of the Wrexham Supporters Trust, tweeted today: "In the region of 40k I'm hearing, which seems a crazy sum for a WPL club to offer to me. What's the record transfer fee?"
Keates told Dave Jones of the Daily Post: "“I find it amusing that they (Bangor) have come out and said it in the press, so if that is the way they operate that is up to them. They have highlighted it, and they have made an offer and it has already been turned down."
