'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Davis hopes for triple deal

Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis expects to complete new deals with Steve Phillips and Kelvin Mellor over the next week.

He also hopes that winger Byron Moore follows their example as he continues to stall over new terms at Gresty Road.

Experienced goalkeeper Phillips will assume the role of a player-coach while an improved offer to defender Mellor should see him available for the start of the new campaign despite a minor ankle operation.

"We are not far away with Kelvin. We have improved his offer and are very hopeful he will sign shortly," Davis explained to This is Staffordshire. "I see Steve as being key to what we are trying to do. He wants to develop his coaching, he's been working with the Liverpool academy for 12 months and he can bring a lot into our academy here.

"Byron has been away on holiday for a while and didn't take his phone. He's not the best at communicating," he added. "He's very close to making his decision. If he's going to stay I will be delighted if not I would like to know sooner rather than later so we can plan for the future."
