Davids will not be rushed

The Dutch international is out of contract at Juventus in the summer and the Italian champions are growing frustrated with his failure to agree a new deal.
Juve have already stated that they think a deal with Roma has already been struck - something Davids has denied - and they are anxious to know where they stand.
They would ideally like to sell Davids in January, if he does not want to stay in Turin - an option which is yet to be totally discounted by the Dutchman.
If Davids does tell Juve he is not staying, then he is likely to wait until the summer anyway when he can leave on a Bosman.
His lawyer Robert Geerlings has now confirmed there is a great deal of interest in his client from the likes of Internazionale and Roma, as well as from England and Spain.
"There are many interested, like Moratti [Inter president Massimo], and there is still something in Rome from Sensi [Roma president Franco]," said Geerlings.
"Spain and England are also alternatives, but Juve cannot be forgotten - if there is a chance to remain we will take advantage of that.
"But Edgar has asked me to hold everything until 2004."
