Davis delight at Oliver deal

Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis is tipping new signing, former Lincoln City striker Vadaine Oliver to prosper with the Railwaymen following his 45,000 move to the Gresty Road outfit.

The 21-year-old targetman, who scored 14 goals in 41 games for the Imps in his one season with Lincoln, signed on the dotted line at Crewe yesterday following a medical with head physio Rob Sharp and has penned a two-year contract with the League One side.

Now Davis, who has been linked with the vacant Wolves job, is expecting big things of a player who caught his eye last season. He told Crewe's official website: 'Vadaine is a player we have watched for a while and he has had a very good year with Lincoln. He was at Sheffield Wednesday before that but suffered an injury so his career had to take a different path. He is still young and has a lot of potential.

'He scored goals for Lincoln, including a really good hat-trick on his final appearance there against Hyde. He is a really ambitious lad and we are bringing in him to develop him and make him an even better player.

'He has a similar record to that on Mathias (Pogba) when he was at Wrexham and we believe he is another young lad with a lot of potential. If he can make that sort of impact then we would be delighted.'
