Wolves holding talks with Fletcher

Wolves holding talks with Fletcher

The breaking news over night is that Burnley striker Steven Fletcher is holding talks with Wolves over a transfer.

Previous reports had suggested that we had been unsuccessful with a £7.5million bid, but it appears we may well have upped our offer, which according the BBC has been accepted by relegated Burnley.

The 23-year-old has now been given permission to discuss personal terms.

If the transfer is completed, Fletcher will become our most expensive signing in our history, breaking the £6.5 million spent last summer for Kevin Doyle.

Vital Wolves Comment: Would it be money well spent?

Last summer he only cost Burnley £3 million, but 8 Premier League goals later, his value has almost trebled!

Lets hope he is here to help Doyler and not replace him. http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11661_6189965,00.html

Great signing. Wish Fulham had gone after him. Though, £6.5m is a little much.

Very happy with this signing. I really do believe that Fletcher has the quality to make a career in the Premier League and fingers-crossed he'll be doing that with Wolves for a very long time. Hopefully Mick puts him up beside Kev Doyle because Doyler is crying out for a partner up front. This could be the start of a beautiful friendship.

I agree Adam, think will form a great partnership. Just a bit concerned as to why/how our midfield four will be able to cope next season when it was clear they couldn't last season. Perhaps MM has his eye on one more signing to strengthen midfield?

Need a creative midfilder IMO. At the moment Karl Henry is stuck between the two roles of creative midfilder/ball winner. Need someone to take a bit of pressure of him.
