Queens Park Rangers are the latest side to be linked with a move for £1.5m striker Freddy Eastwood, bringing his list of suitors to five.
Not bad for a player barely able to command a place on Mick McCarthy's bench.
Which is just one of the reasons why Wolves fans are currently split over the subject of their manager.
Formations, tactics, sselections, comments aimed at fans, falling house prices.....
The last one was a lie, that was Jez Moxey's fault, but I think you get the idea.
In fact on the face of it, almost everything that once made McCarthy Merlin, now makes him a muppet, depending on which side of the divide you sit.
The summer months before the start of next season may be the Yorkshiremans saving grace.
The transfer listing of half a team gives McCarthy the chance to spend a few more of Morgans millions.
His track record on signings at Wolves is a mixed bag, but on balance his successes outweigh his Eastwoods.
Kightly, Foley, Gray, SEB, Jarvis, Keogh, Edwards, Elokobi and Henry have all been astute signings.
Now it's time for Mick to make a few more.
With no need to go wholesale shopping, McCarthy may be tempted to break the £2m barrier for the first time.
That may not mark him as a transfer big gun, but it does mean he can look above the lower leagues to find talents that match those of his more coveted youngsters.
Whoever he buys, it will be with the fact lack of success next season could well bring his reign at Molineux to a close in mind.
