Football: Curtis in mood for a move.

Byline: By ALISTAIR GRANT

CURTIS DAVIES is set to hit West Brom with a transfer request this week - sparking a raid from Tottenham.

The pounds 6million-rated centre-back wants out following the play-off flop and will demand a move after jetting back from holiday this weekend.

England Under-21 ace Davies, who says he is stagnating at The Hawthorns, plans to hand his transfer letter to chairman Jeremy Peace.

That will set in motion Tottenham's pursuit of Davies, although boss Martin Jol is expected to assess Peace's reaction to Davies' request before making an immediate bid.

A source said: "Curtis is adamant his career will stagnate if he stays.

"He wants to play in the Premiership and the club have to ask themselves if they want someone at the club who clearly doesn't want to be there."

The 22-year-old would have joined Arsenal for pounds 7m a year ago if the offer hadn't been knocked back.
