It's almost season's end, and for some, that means only one thing.
It's time to spin the rumour wheel.
Most get brushed aside as mere idle gossip, but when the subject of debatr is Joleon Lescott, Wolves fans take note.
With a string of Premiership managers having already stopped off at the Golden Palace,, David Moyes and Stuart Pierce amongst them, and Wolves diapointing season fast descending into farce, it was only a matter of time before one of Wolves midlands rivals showed an interest in their jewel in the crown.
And if todays reports are to be believed, that time has come and David O'Leary is on the verge of joining the queue of managers with £3million to burn in their pockets.
A product of the Wolves Youth Acadamy, Jo has had a special place in all Wanderers fans hearts since his debut way back in '99 at the age of 18.
And unusually there are few who would begrudge him the chance to move up to the big boys in a bid to further his career.
Many saw his signing of a new two and a half year deal early on in this current campaign as a sign not of his loyalty to the club, and a desire to stay.
But as a gesture to enure that when he does leave, Wolves would not be held to ransom and pick up his full market value when he leaves.
A nice gesture from a player in age when the Bosmnan ruling makes so many wealthy men.
If it does come to pass that he leaves, his presence in the heart of defence will be sorely missed by those who sing his name so loud at Molineux.
It would also come as a bitter blow to whoever holds the reins at the Black Country club when the next promotion campaign begins in earnest following the World Cup.
But for now it is still mere speculation, and not a notion Wolves fans will consider with any joy.
