Davis: I Need To Move

Fulham star Sean Davis believes that he has to quit Craven Cottage to further his career.

The 23-year-old midfielder was named in the squad for England's friendly against Australia in February, but played no part in the fixture.

Davis is looking to move to 'a bigger club' in order to improve his international prospects.

"I've been at Fulham a long time and I think it's time I moved on," he said.

"I feel I'd have a better chance of making the European Championships by moving to a bigger club."

Davis has played in each of the four divisions for the Cottagers since making his debut as a 17-year-old in a 3-0 win over Cambridge in 1996.

Since then the former England Under-21 international has been an integral part of Fulham's rise to the Premiership.

However, the recent sale of Steve Finnan to Liverpool has convinced Davis that his future lies away from West London.

"I have made the decision with no disrespect to Chris Coleman, who is a great guy," he continued.

"In fact, the decision was made harder because of my respect for him. Hopefully he will do well, but I have to put myself first."

"I want to improve as a player and this is a crossroads in my career. It's not been an overnight decision.

"But I'm a very ambitious player and I don't think Fulham have the necessary ambition since they sold Steve."
