Mick McCarthy will once again have to move his focus onto another centre back after we refused to get involved in a bidding war for Matt Mills.
Having been left in deadlock with Birmingham over the £9million evaluation of Roger Johnson, Wolves moved to try and sign Matt Mills.
The 24-year-old defender had just a year left on his contract at Reading, which should have meant that his value would decrease from the £3million price tag that Reading had slapped on his head.
Wolves refused to match that price offering around £2.5million, so when Leicester came along and offered an initial £4.3million rising to £5.5million, our interest ended and Reading probably laughed their way all the way to the bank.
Leicester could even be paying him £30,000-a-week over the four-year deal that he has signed, a lucrative deal that again we wouldn't have dreamt of matching.
Even if Mills was desperate to play in the Premier League he would be barking mad to turn down personal terms like that.
Vital Wolves Comment: Manchester United's Jonny Evans could remain a target and I still think that would be a fantastic signing.
