Headline news

As another week passes, Wolves still appear no closer to signing any more of Mick McCarthy's sumer targets.

Depending on which newspaper you believe, this could mean one of two things.

Wolves are currently either a minnow waiting to be asset stripped for funds by the big league sharks, or sitting pretty, in the process of strengthening an already talented young squad with the multi millionnare backing of Steve Morgan.

Two very contrasting positions.

McCarthy has gone on record as saying he believes most deals will be done later rather than sooner once the Euro's have been done and dusted leaving headline writers to sensationalise rather than be sensational.

All the Lafferty puns have been used up. The Kightly 'flying' angle has been done to death, and just about the only thing not printed about the Record Breaker so far is Wayne wants to be a Wenger boy.

Which incidently, he doesn't.

All of the players said to be wanted by Premiership sides are tied up in long term contracts.

All are virtually guaranteed first team football.

That they attract attention is unavoidable.

So is believing every 2+2=5 speculation surrounding them.

With their usual tight lipped stance on incoming players, outside of the Lafferty deal, the club are refusing to acknowledge who they may be keeping a close eye on, although Jez Moxey has played down speculation linking Wolves to Barnsley`s Brian Howard and Fulham`s Lee Cook.

One date for the diary would appear to be June 25th, the day Hearts captain Christophe Berra returns from his well earned holiday.

Berra has publicly stated his desire to move to England, and Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov would favour a deal with Wolves over Berra's other suitor, Rangers due to a feud going back two years over the eventual move to Hampden of Andy Webster.

The Webster affair, which eventually may be seen as much of a landmark as the creation of the Bosman ruling, saw him buy out the last year of his contract at Tynecastle to move to Wigan, only to be loaned out to Rangers for the last 18 months before making the move permanent, something that denied Hearts a possibly hefty transfer fee and ended in the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland.

Having already seen a £1.5 m bid turned down, McCarthy will have to table around £2m for Romanov to agree to talks, well within his budget, and by no means an outrageous sum for a young defender breaking into the Scotland national side.



3 days and counting.
