Report: Sheffield Wednesday improve contract offer, finally set to sign Bolton's Mark Davies

Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly poised to sign Bolton playmaker Mark Davies.

According to the Daily Mail, Sheffield Wednesday are finally set to sign Bolton Wanderers playmaker Mark Davies, after making an improved contract offer.

The Owls beat Bolton 3-2 at Hillsborough on Tuesday night, with Gary Hooper's late winner seeing off a plucky Wanderers side, who had twice pegged Wednesday back.

Now, just 24 hours later, a transfer could be in the works between the two clubs, as playmaker Mark Davies is on the verge of a move to Yorkshire.

Davies, 27, came up through the ranks with Wolverhampton Wanderers before joining Bolton in 2009, and with the Trotters in financial meltdown, the midfielder is one of the most desirable assets.

Carlos Carvalhal's men have been pursuing a deal for Davies all week, but The Bolton News reported just yesterday that a deal to take Davies to Hillsborough had fallen through over personal terms.

Now though, the deal is back on, with the Daily Mail reporting that Wednesday have offered an improved contract, and Davies is poised to sign a £750,000 deal with the promotion-chasing Owls.

With Davies, Barry Bannan, Ross Wallace, Marco Matias and Modou Sougou, Carvalhal certainly has plenty of creative talent at his disposal, but the imminent signing could spell bad news for Lewis McGugan.

A fringe player under Carvalhal, it's hard to see where the former Nottingham Forest man would fit in if Davies does sign, which could set up a January exit for the attacking midfielder.
