The vultures are beginning to circle around Wolves Premier League carcass.
With the clubs relegation to the Premier League a matter of when, not if, we expected to start hearing some rumours of players being linked with a end of season move away from Molineux.
Terry Connor may have attempted to ban all talk of players potential moves away, but that doesn't stop the media, not when there's transfer rumours to invent.....sorry report.
Today we have a number of reports of players attempting to abandon ship as Wolves plunge into the football league.
We've got The Mirror linking 25-year-old midfielder Jamie O`Hara with potential moves to Aston Villa, West Brom and Stoke (now that would hurt to see him move to the Baggies), we've got the Express & Star linking Sunderland manager Martin O`Neill with a move for midfielder Karl Henry, while the Daily Mirror have also linked O'Neill with Steven Fletcher.
The Star are linking Wayne Hennessey with a move to QPR, assuming of course that Mark Hughes can avoid the drop with QPR, Kevin Doyle is rumoured to be picking up interest from Everton, Southampton and a return to Reading and E&S columnist Ron Atkinson wants West Brom to make a move for Matt Jarvis.
But despite the papers predicting a mass exodus at Molineux, Terry Connor believes that the clubs financial state will dictate who stays and goes.
Unlike many clubs who get relegated, a fire sale of players in a desperate bid to balance the books will not be needed. Obvious cost cutting exercises are just obvious good practice, so expect some trimming of expenses, but with no debt we do not require a quick sale of all our main assets.
"I don`t think it`s a fact of life that you have to lose players or get 'cherry picked`," TC told E&S.
He continued: "We`ll be fighting tooth and nail to have our best team and our best players available - whatever league we`re in.
"We`ll review this season at the end of it and the club might decide they want to do down a certain line."
Vital Wolves Comment: While hopefully we won't be held to ransom in regards to some players, unfortunately we now live in an era of player power in and if one player wants to leave, they invariably will.
