Owen Coyle has confirmed Bolton have received no offers for Mark Davies.

Davies has been linked with a £6million switch to Liverpool in recent days, but Coyle insists the player is a major part of his plans for the future at the Reebok Stadium.

"I can tell you there's been absolutely no phone calls, no dialogue, nothing about Mark Davies," Coyle said.

"It's the usual paper speculation and conjecture.

"If anybody out there thinks any of our players will be leaving on a whim then they're sadly mistaken.

"Since I came in and inherited that squad, when they were second-bottom of the league and everything else, we've had to patch things up year-by-year because there were players who were on long-term contracts and big money that we couldn't move on.

"We've now got young players that we've tied up on long-term contracts because that's the future of the club. That'll move us on and take us back to the Premier League, I believe.

"Mark Davies, Adam Bogdan and Lee Chung-yong - these are all lads that I've tied up on long-term contracts and we did that because we want them at the football club, to be the nucleus of the team that drives us forward.

"So I can assure you, as far as I'm concerned and the chairman and the owner know my feelings, those players are scheduled to be with us for next season and are looking to get back to the Premier League."
