Hoff back in McCarthy's plans?
For the past year it has looked like Stefan Maierhofer's days at Molineux were just about up.
It was just a matter of timing when the Austrian giant would leave Wolves for good.
The 28-year-old 6ft 7ins striker spent last season on loan at 2nd Bundesliga club MSV Duisburg.
Over the summer he was expected to leave for around £1.3million, which would have been a loss as he initially cost us £1.8million 2 years ago, but he now does only have 1 year left on his contract.
Eintracht Frankfurt and Hannover 96 have reportedly been interested in taking the Hoff, but he may have actually played his way back into boss Mick McCarthy's thinking.
It was only a 40 minute substitute appearance against Real Zaragoza, but it appears to have been enough to get our Mick thinking.
"We made a lot of substitutions and Stefan was among the pick of them - he was excellent.' he said to the Express & Star.
He added: "I bought him to do that and if he continues to do that then he will be in my squad."
So perhaps his days are not numbered after all? But with his contract situation as it is we should really decide soon whether we want to keep hold of him or sell him.
Delay the situation any longer and we'll end up with him on the books for another year and watching him leave for nothing come the end of the season.
