Simon Corney confirmed the bid by saying, "Craig Davies is quite an ambitious target, but we are very keen to sign him permanently. We have been tracking him for a while because he has the ability and the pace to become a huge asset for our team. It would be expensive to bring him in, but sometimes you need to speculate a little if you want to get the right players. At the moment Verona are looking for a six-figure fee, but hopefully our negotiations might bring that down quite significantly. We hope Craig would represent value for money, and he was very highly recommended by Wolves when we asked for their opinion. He is someone we like and admire. The way he performed against us in the cup last season showed he is a very talented player."
