Fulham join chase for Wolves star Jarvis

Fulham join chase for Wolves star Jarvis

Fulham are the latest club to join the chase for Matt Jarvis, piggy backing onto the interest from Southampton and Everton.

As we've already confessed before 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 around a month ago.

The Daily Express reported that Southampton were valuing him at around £4million, making him one of the main targets this summer.

A couple of weeks later the Daily Mail followed that article up, reporting Southampton's continued interest with a valuation of £4million, but also stated that Everton are also interested.

Now we have a variety of reports floating around that Fulham have joined the party.

This time around the fee has jumped to £5million, still massively under the valuation many Wolves fans would put on his head, but at least the figure is going in the right direction.

Our friends over on Vital Fulham seem keen, believing he could be the man to to provide the service Pavel Pogrebnyak needs.

Vital Wolves Comment: If their manager feels the same then we could finally begin to get that auction up and running to make sure we get the highest possible fee for him.

Dont know where the paltry sum of £4 or £5mil is coming from in the press, surely we wont let him go for anything under £10 mil... also been seeing a number of reports that we're after some icelandic player and apparently were in for De Laet as well... if there's any truth to these it is encouraging that we're seemingly trying to plug some of the problem areas from early on...

Admant De Laet has joined LEICESTER and as for these teams trying to get Jarvis for 4-5 Million is a joke start at 12 mil and work your way up.If Liverpool and Man U can pay 15-20 Mill for young and Downing then Jarvo is the same as he is the only one who can cross a ball with both feet.These teams are trying to get our players on the cheap because we got relegated but we dont have to sell so Morgan Moxey and the new manager need to stand firm and if there to leave get the going rate which is a hell of a lot more than 5 mill.Also Admant who is the Icelandic player have you heard of himand where does he play.

We can afford to wait for a sensible offer for Jarvis (and Fletcher, for that matter) but unless management has a change of policy, we are going to have to sell in order to plug our own gaps. The Icelandic player that SS wants is the strijer, Bjorn Bergmann Sigurdarson, but he is also on Everton's radar too. We lost De Laet to Leicester, another Championship team, presumably because they could offer the lad better terms. It could hamper our quest for a quick return to the PL.

Southbank60 not bothered about De Laet as he was with Norwich on loan from Man U and they sent him back because he kept giveing away penalties.I dont know about a change of policy as they have said we do not need to sell and we have a war chest so it should be quite interesting to see what happens.

if Jarvo is to go then he needs to go to a big club-fulham are on a par with walsall only difference between them is one is in the prem and the other ain't. Stop helping the media vital wolves with their speculation, the club has said nobody is leaving until the manager has a chance to assess all the players so just leave it at that.

Kiawolves: the policy I was referring to was the board's unwillingness to dig very deeply into the purse [it's not a war-chest] to pay the going rate to attract players of the requisite quality. Inevitably, we will have to sell one or two of our stars in order to bring in people to cover our weak positions. Johnwolf: I'm with you in your opinion but if a big club [even a decent PL club] offer us a good deal, the player will go. No professional club can afford to keep disaffected players, no matter how badly we would like to keep them ... and we are no different even with our financial cushion.

Well now is the time for the players to show how true they are to the words they have been singing from the roof tops for the past three years, that the spirit and unity among the group is second to none. I won't blame them for last season. Mismanagement at all levels barely gave them a chance but most are young enough to spend a season in the Championship- Doyle did it and funnily enough at the minute he is not one of even the main two we are talking about leaving us- we would certainly struggle to make our money back on him based on the fact he has been played everywhere and in every which manner except as a forward so people will look at his goals and such. The likes of an Everton I imagine would see the use in the way he can play but still. I hope he stays. He told Reading he would give them a season to get back up and they didn't so he left. I hope he gives us a season because I think the new manager can get goals from him. As for the others we all hold the club to their financial boasts and some of the players will not be prepared to put themselves in a position and say they want to leave. Fletcher belongs in the Premiership but I don't think he is the type to ask for a move- it will depend on the club saying oh well it's a lot of money so if he wants he can talk to them. If you are the player put in that position then you would go; the club will have played it's hand. They have put themselves in a difficult position now because without any need to sell the players can always turn round and say they never asked to leave and that the club made the decision to sell. If one goes then I think that will start the domino effect and we shall lose the rest of the best. Then we have to try and bring in players not neccessarily as good in the interim, we are going to be playing Championship football for at least a season, but are we going to buy in players just to sell them for better ones in the event of a promotion. I hope we can keep what we have as unlikely as is may be.

trouble is NTCW is that when Doyle gave them a year he was a lot younger and could afford to then, not any more.

Point taken Greg. Conflicting stories today, Doyle saying he is not looking for a Reading return (surely he would prefer something other than a 5th relegation battle on his cards) elsewhere, without surprise Jarvis is being lined up with half the division. Reading it this morning and the fact everyone has roots it will not be a surprise if they want to move it closer to home, pretty difficult to turn down if PL football comes with it. With the timing I doubt SS got to meet the players but the only hope is if he reaches out and can convince them of a season. The other factor of course is that most of the players had the clause written in apparantly halving their wages in the event of relegation. They may wish to tend to some of those contracts. Be tough to keep them though so I am bracing myself to see Fletcher, Jarvis and Doyle go, and a feeling JOH will be another through the door.

Hi to all with my 1st ever post.. Yee Haa!! Big thank you to all who have posted to this site over the season, it has been highly entertaining during a 'not so' entertaining season.. I am not too concerned who we lose over the summer, as long as we get 'top dollar' for them and the money re-invested in the team. I think SS will have some gems to bring over and continue with some of the promising youngters that are hungry to impress.. As for KD, if my memory serves me well he stated when he signed his new contract that "there may be a time when Wolves go down, but long term he can see the Wolves becoming a top 10 club that he wants to be part of".. Bit of a strange statement at the time I thought regarding us going down, but mystic Kev was right, lets hope he is right about the 2nd part :)
