Wolves Bites - Transfer Rumours - 5th Jan

Wolves Bites - Transfer Rumours - 5th Jan

Wolves have been linked with a double move on Manchester City, while Bristol City have denied reports that we have made a bid for their striker.

Nicky Maynard has been linked with a switch to Molineux for quite some time with the 25-year old putting in impressive performances in the Championship.

Other clubs including Premier League side QPR and Championship sides Ipswich Town and Leicester City have also been linked, but Bristol City gaffer Derek McInnes has confirmed that there have been no offers for his star player.

'There is no truth in these rumours,' said McInnes in the Bristol Evening Post.

Before adding: 'As things stand, we have still not received a single bid for Nicky Maynard.

The other rumours consist of Wolves hoping to boost our defensive options by raiding Manchester City for their extensive list of cast-offs.

One name that has done the rounds for a while is former England Under-21 defender Nedum Onuoha who is now 25-years-old.

According to various internet reports we have made a bid of £2.5million which has been matched by QPR.

West Bromwich Albion, Newcastle and Sunderland have also been linked with him from time to time but as yet have failed to make a move for him.

Bolton are also thought to be interested but while Gary Cahill's move to Chelsea drags on they are stuck in limbo.

The other possible move is the most unlikely, in the form of Wayne Bridge.

On paper an experienced left back with quality would be a superb move, but while he is on ridiculous wages of £95,000-a-week, this will never happen.

To complete the hat-trick QPR are also interested in Bridge, but despite their rich backers they are unlikely to match those wage demands so something is going to have to give if Bridge wants to kick-start his career away from Man City.

I wonder what the connection is with QPR at the moment, Karl Henry was linked with a move there and all three rumoured players that we are interested in are also linked to them. Just lazy journos or something more?

I think that new owner is ready to throw money at it,Akela.I wouldn't be surprised if they bagged a few this window.As soon as word is out a player is up for grabs they seem to be on it.

Lazy journos mate that all it is. They know that both us and QPR are looking to boost our squads! It's always the same, we keep tight lipped over our dealings and the press just make up whatever they want! But I would like to see Onuoha come in and a striker, not sure if Maynard fits the bill though

The problem with non-PL strikers is that that they are not necessarily able to replicate their performances in the top flight. We have one like that. On the other hand, there's Shane Long, who tore us apart when we played WBA. On a slightly different tack, I hope that Kightly has refound his best form and that he is able to make the step up. He can score goals as well as deliver accurate crosses.

Let's hope that Kightly has got himself up to speed.Would be great if he turned out to be 'like a new signing' as we hoped he would this season.We know we're desperately short of somebody dynamic in possession, willing to carry the ball at pace. MJ and AH have shown far too little of that;in fits and starts at best.

Well we hoped that at the start of the season, and it didn't quite happen, fingers crossed this time. I noticed that he played in most of Watfords games and picked up a couple of goals!

Certainly wouldn't waste a penny on Wayne Bridge. The biggest issue we will have is that we can't compete with QPR's wage structure. Barton made that quite clear to Henry. No way we will offer 70 -80k a week for any player. QPR will. Any Move for Maynard needs to be made ASAP or he'll no doubt end up somewhere else assuming he's good enough?? Can't see Craig Gardner leaving either now.

I wonder if its true that we have put bids in for Onuoha AND Maynard as JM has stated we have not bid for anyone which usually means we have. Would still like Gardener or Diame as well but that would mean selling a couple of players or not nameing them in the twenty five at the end of Jan.SB when you mentioned Wolves haveing the lowest tackles count thats in the top five divisions in europe not just the PL. This is the reason i keep on about PL quality and not up and comeing youngsters or it could be the coaching like you have said but one way or the other it needs to be put right.

Kia I agree there is something wrong at Compton, Now youa re probably aware that I am a MM fan, but the thing is when he came into the club he brought noone with him, all the staff stayed from the previous regime. It is looking likely that there needs to be a change in the backroom staff. We keep hearing about promising youngsters but where are they??? Out on loan, and then leaving the club!!!
