Frank McCarthy & Jarvis Transfer Talk

Frank McCarthy & Jarvis Transfer Talk

One may wonder if McCarthy has been at the Bitter today. Having already announced his team for the trip to Newcastle Mick has beaten others to the inevitable transfer talk regarding Matt Jarvis and with some concern spoken of our potential difficulty in keeping the player.
Whilst Jarvis returned from his England debut clearly focused and with his feet on the ground, insisting his call up and experience can only help him as a player and Wolves, McCarthy has taken the step to slap a reality sticker on the player and his future.
Mick said of Jarvis 'He`s been here four or five years and has been wonderful for us, getting us promoted and keeping us up, but if a top four club comes in with an unbelievable amount of money and he wants to be a regular for England, it becomes very difficult. But if you say 'no, we`re adding to our squad` then who knows?'

I am not sure the last sentence even makes sense, but considering as a club we have repeated that we have no need to sell, and only wish to develop talk of 'unbelievable money' which we know is thrown around with careless abandon this statement says if you want to get silly then perhaps we can talk.

Jarvis must be on the wish list of at least a dozen Premiership managers and whilst being realistic is all well and proper I am not exactly thrilled with the comment because it's basically flashing a green light.

If Jarvis had been oddly quiet upon his return from duty or if there was any concern regarding his dedication that would be one thing, but he has in crystal clear fashion actually stated his desire to do the best for himself and Wolves and gone one better saying he hopes his inclusion can open the door for a few more Wolves players to get a call up.

Less of this Frank Mccarthy character I say!

I will end by saying the only time this becomes an issue is when a concrete bid is on the table. So I would say we have nothing to worry about. For 2 months.
