Former Southend striker Freddy Eastwood`s Molineux future is once again the subject of media speculation.
Many were shocked by the news Eastwood had asked manager Mick McCarthy to consider offers for him during the transfer window, and subsequently came hours away from joining Coventry City on loan only for the gaffer to have an about turn of face at the last moment.
But Sky Blues boss Chris Coleman looks set to maintain his interest in the Wales International with a reported £2 million bid lined up for the summer.
Despite a lively start to his Wolves career, Eastwood has entered the strikers graveyard at Molineux that has seen may tried and tested forwards fail to live up to their billing.
And with Sylvan Ebank Blake forming a deadly partnership with Andy Keogh, limiting the 23 year old`s minutes on the pitch, the chance to recoup Southends fee plus a third may be too tempting for Mick McCarthy to turn down.
Forwards like two things. Playing, and scoring, and doing neither will always lead them to seek pastures new, especially in a squad with so many.
But with Jay Bothroyd looking to be heading out the door, and Eastwood`s future now in doubt, Wolves strike options are starting to look precariously limited, when once they were over abundant.
Of the forwards available for the Molineux bench, Bothroyd and Eastwood arguably have the most potential, but neither will ever be satisfied with the bit part role they seem destined for following SEB`s instant impact and alliance with Andy Keogh.
Which would leave Stephen Ward, Kevin Kyle and Stephen Elliot as McCarthy's guns in reserve.
Mr Morgan if you're reading, can we have some more please?
