West Bromwich Albion have issued a hands-off warning to Arsenal over Curtis Davies.
West Bromwich Albion manager Bryan Robson has issued a firm hands-off warning to any clubs interested in prising Curtis Davies away from The Hawthorns.
Arsenal are rumoured to be the latest team to show an interest in the highly-rated former Luton defender, who was the subject of a failed bid from The Gunners' North London rivals Tottenham in May.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger may even be prepared to loan out England international Theo Walcott to The Baggies in a bid to tempt Robson to cash in on Davies.
But the Black Country club are determined to retain the majority of last season's squad as they seek an immediate return to the top flight - with Robson prepared to resist all comers for maturing captain Davies.
"There's been a lot of interest but Curtis is not for sale," Robson told Sky Sports News.
"He's got a three-year contract with us and we want to make a good go at getting back out of this division and Curtis is a major part of that."
Robson refused to disclose whether or not Arsenal had registered an interest in Davies, heeding instead a popular managerial mantra.
"I'm not going into individual interest," added Robson. "There's been approaches for quite a few and they've all been turned down - we want to keep all the squad together."
