West Brom boss Tony Mowbray says that the club are waiting for the right offer before selling Curtis Davies, but has not ruled out the player staying.
The highly-rated defender is tipped for a move away from The Hawthorns within the current transfer window, but Mowbray says the transfer will only be considered if Davies' suitors match their valuation.
Tottenham and Aston Villa are amongst the names to have been linked with a move for the wantaway England Under 21 international, and Mowbray admits Davies has been affected by the speculation.
He said: "We have been talking to clubs interested in Curtis, yes, but our position is that players will only leave the club when they meet our valuations.
"I would like to think I am a compassionate manager and Curtis is a young player who is struggling to get into the right frame of mind to play - that is why he has been absent from the teams.
"But if the right offer does not come in before the transfer window closes, then Curtis' situation changes, and we will expect him to be fit and available for selection."
Reports have suggested that the Baggies duo have had a dispute in regards to the transfer, but Mowbray moved quickly to deny such speculation.
"There is nothing personal," he continued.
"There is no issue between us and we have not fallen out."
