Chase for Jarvis hots up

Chase for Jarvis hots up

Matt Jarvis is unlikely to still be at Wolves next season now that he has become the target of both Southampton and Everton.

He was always likely to be one of the first to leave Wolves at the end of the season and that became clear when Premier League new boys Southampton made their first move for Jarvis 2 weeks ago.

The Daily Express believe that Southampton were set to make a £4million bid for Jarvis, making him one of the main targets this summer.

Today the Daily Mail have also reported Southampton's continued interest with a valuation of £4million, but have also stated that Everton are also interested.

If true this could spark a mini auction for the 25-year-old hopefully insuring we get the best possible price for him.

His departure may be inevitable, but surely not to Southampton and surely for the paltry sum of £4 mil ? It's insulting to even hint that he is worth the same as the useless roger johnson... More like £10 mil and to Everton if he wants to following in Jo Lescotts very succesful footsteps !

don't usually agree with admant - but he is right, if we let Jarvo go for £4million then the club need their heads looking at, I know it is more or less immpossible to keep players when you go down, but our players owe the club and fans big time + they had a lot to say about how much they wanted to play for the club - well lads prove it! by helping us get back up, give it a season and if we don't go back up then you can have your transfer - seems fair to me.

I fully agree AdMant. Only - this thought has just occurred to me: chances are not remote that the Saints go straight back down AND Wolves straight up again. But the loyalty will have gone, and I would not be over-joyed at his return. A case of 'a glass once broken' for me.

great post JohnWolf, shame it doesnt work like that eh. I hate seeing favoured players moving on and becoming part of another team especially "lesser clubs" like southampton (waiting for the tool letissisgod to reply to that one) I could take a move to everton etc albeit with great sadness

Excellent comment, JohnWolf. Rounds up the general feeling among the fans, I think. I suggest you e-mail that to Jez to forward to the players. Honest.

If MJ went to Southampton, it would be for money reasons, not footballing. Southampton will come back down next season. They are neither a Norwich or a Swansea. If Everton came in for him then to be honest he would be silly not to accept. I'd like to keep all our better players but money is a great motivator. Nice to see that the Club are making very positive moves over the last few days. We all make mistakes.....how we deal with them is a sign of the persons character. SM has really pulled the rabbit out of the hat especially announcing that we are after a DoF and an assistant manager. Wiggen is the obvious for Assistant. Be interesting to see who the 3 they are lining up for the DoF role are. I suspect Graham Taylor, Wilkins will be in that list. Makes sense to push JM into the background. He is brilliant at finance....not so good at footballing stuff so this can only be a positive move.

Would love to see Jarvis at Everton, I still think he is a very good player, and to me he seems like an Everton type player (although have seen limited action of him) and could thrive under Moyes. Unfortunately, as always with Everton, the price would rule us out, even 4mil will be too steep for us (and that price does sound a tad low) and I am sure Moyes will make Pienaar priority over anyone this summer. So fingers crossed, but cant see Everton signing him. Good luck next season lads, hopefully a quick return to the Prem League.

27 Years in the top flight not bad for a "lesser club". Talking of going straight back down. Didn't you lot coin the term yo-yo club? no thats right 19year absence from the top flight followed by 1 year then a massive 3 consecutive. Expecting to bounce straight back up? I'd have a word with Brum fans next when they beat you next season! Chin up Noddy!

If your memories were a bit longer, you would remember that hte Championship is very hard and the teams that come down from the Prem are not always automatically promoted, this season there will only be 1 West Ham or Blackpool. You are also very quick to dismiss Southampton as a lesser team, now let me get this straight, Premiership is a higher league than Championship? Therefore Southampton are the mightier team than 'lesser' Wolves right? It may have also slipped your attention that Southampton have the 5th maybe 6th richest owners in the league and we all know what money can buy. Although I would rather have mid table with a club built on a good youth policy and wise buying, than pushing for honours with massive debts. But please don't worry if Matt does decide to join us we will look after him and he'll be in the company of a winning team!
