Should Wolves sell Kightly?

Should Wolves sell Kightly?

Michael Kightly, Christophe Berra, Stephen Hunt, Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, Nenad Milijas, Ronald Zubar and Adlene Guedioura are all out of contract in 12 months time.

Under Mick McCarthy any player that was either worth a significant transfer fee, or held a future at Molineux would be signed up to a long term contract.

Working players contracts in such a way means that the club is in a much stronger negotiating position when it comes to players possible departures, but since Mick's own departure, Wolves have been in transition and a new manager brings new ideas.

So what will the future hold for the named players? Well it seems if they are treated in the same way as Kightly then it all depends on what kind of transfer fee the club could recoup by selling them, with Solbakken happy to consider selling if the price is right.

"At the moment he`s part of the plans but he has one year left on his contract and this is the last period of time you can get serious money for him.' Ståle Solbakken said to the Shropshire Star.

He added: "So we need to consider whether we do a good deal and get a good player coming in, or if the fee is too small and the player is too good - the player is worth more than the offer.

"So is it better for the club in the long term that he stays or goes?

I really hope Kightly signs up. I know he is injury prone, but when he isn't and he is on top from he will terrorise most left-backs in the Prem (let alone the Championship). As for the others I think we should off-load Berra, Hunt and Milijas if we can. Not sure on Ebanks-Blake he is a good striker but if Fletch is staying I don't see when he will play. Sign Zubar and Adlene for 3 years!

It's really up to him but I hope he stays as he's a great player and a good man.

It would be nice to be able to read the confidential injury reports on Kights! How much is one year of Kightly's contract worth? Money talks! If we keep Jarvis, £10 - no! £1.5m - yes! If we lose Jarvo, then, as our priority is to buy a centre-half, I would think it best to hold on to Kightly come hell or high water! I hope he stays.

I agree with 86lobo77 that we should keep Kites. If fit, he will terrorize Championship defences and score goals as well as make assists. Unlike Jarvis, he is as adept at cutting inside as going round his man (and better at both) and therefore poses the greater threat. He is injury-prone and therefore a risk but as he had a decent run of games at the end of last season, we surely saw enough of him to make it a risk worth taking. And he is likely to stay. Apart from the fact that he owes the club (but when did that mean anything?), we would receive far less than his his true worth in a transfer because of the injury-prone tag.

He should obviously stay • As good if not beter than Jarvis • The club has stood by him • Champs means a great opp to get back to form • We wont get a fraction for him as for Jarvo. Unsurprisingly it's our star talent getting touted in the press - but i really want to see that sack of ***** johnson out the door - and he can take berra, stearman, elokobi, ohara, hunt and milijas with him. Lets get in some decent defensive talent to match our obvious strength up-front WE ARE WOLVES

I think the manager is simply assessing his options and speaking of the reality that we may lose the player for nothing if there is not a deal signed within the next 4 or 5 months when he can start talking. Kites said after his injury he was desperate to repay the clubs faith in him and I believe both are on the same page. Just another story the E & S had concocted in its own manner to sell copies.
