Davis braced for Powell offers
The 18-year-old looks destined for the top flight this summer with Manchester United believed to be leading the race for his signature.
And Powell showed why Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to splash around £4million on him with a stunning strike to put Crewe on their way to promotion back to League One with a 2-0 play-off final win over Cheltenham.
Davis said: "We've not had any solid offers but I think it will come. Next week we may see something develop."
Assuming Powell does move on, he gave Crewe the perfect leaving present in the 15th minute.
Receiving the ball on the edge of the area, his first touch was sublime, shifting the ball from his right foot to his left while escaping the attention of two defenders.
And his second was simply stunning, a dipping volley which flew over Cheltenham goalkeeper Scott Brown and into the corner of the net.
"I've said all season he's a huge talent," added Davis. "He's a special player who produces special things, he's a big-game player. He's done that many times this season and that was his 16th goal.
"I think he can go to the Premier League, he's a very capable lad."
Powell himself was modest about his cracker, claiming "I just whacked it to be honest."
He added: "I just want to enjoy tonight with the boys and celebrate, I'm not concentrating on the future."
Cheltenham will look back on a host of missed chances to equalise, with Jeff Goulding rattling the crossbar moments after Powell struck.
They were also denied by goal-line clearances from Powell and Ashley Westwood, and goalkeeper Steve Phillips kept Kaid Mohamed at bay after the break.
And Crewe made sure of victory eight minutes from time when Byron Moore exchanged passes with AJ Leitch-Smith before slotting in number two.
Crewe were 18th when Davis took over in November, but a 19-match unbeaten end to the season means they are back in League One three years after they were relegated.
For Cheltenham, who finished five points ahead of their opponents, another season in the basement division beckons.
"That's life," said manager Mark Yates. "They scored two and we didn't.
"One was a wonder-strike from a prodigious talent that you can't do anything about.
"Then we created chance after chance, but when we had two in 10 seconds cleared off the line it probably wasn't going to be our day. But I'm very proud."
