Stoke target Kightly

Stoke target Kightly

Probably highlighted by Ståle Solbakken's recent comments, Stoke boss Tony Pulis could be set to make a move for Kightly.

Kightly is one of a bunch of players who are all set to be out of contract in less than12 months time.

It's still unclear just where the others stand in the big scheme of things since Solbakken took over, but Kightly has previously been spoken about by the new gaffer.

'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 earlier this month.

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?

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.

Solbakken clearly feels happy at testing the waters and seeing just how much transfer funds he could recoup by selling the ones who are close to the end of their current contracts and Stoke appear to be one of the first ones to just see what Solbakken is thinking.

Vital Wolves Comment: I think we would all prefer him to sign a new longer contract, he can certainly a good job for us this season, so personally I'd be putting a new offer on the table for him.

But what kind of fee would tempt you into selling?

I personally wouldn't sell him but 5 mil is probably a realistic figure considering his injury history.

I would be gutted if he went, injuries aside, when he returned at the end of last season he was on fire and I see no reason why he wont be even better this season. What money would tempt me? Well it has to do with who else is out there who could do the same job. I dont think he is any less talented than Jarvis, so it would have to be offers in that region.

I can not think of one single reason that would benefit the club in letting MK go. He was dynamite in the Championship last time around, and whilst he has not had a chance to prove himself at PL level due to the injuries he showed again on loan last season that he is over those injuries and can still do it. Not pressing the panic button because it sounds like they are in talks with him and his agent and considering his comments last season about how much he wants to repay the club and the fans for sticking with him when he admits for a while it was unclear whether he would ever play again, I can't see him leaving. He is just another getting on with his job right now- the manager has already been talking up which different jobs he can do for us so seems they are all on the same page. Hopefully within a few days we will hear he has signed a new deal.

On another website I have written that I would be really disappointed if he left the club now, given all the time, effort and money we have spent, getting him back on the field. I appreciate his desire to make the most of his talent, while he still has two good legs, but he does owe us big time. Moreover, even if we only see him in a WW shirt for one more season before he does a Bosman, it would be worth more to us than the money we could reasonably expect receive this summer (re: nearing end of contract and dodgy pins).

This one I'm torn on! Yes he is a talent and when fit and on form our best winger... The problem for me is that the biggest risk to sustaining an injury is having previously had that injury. And his injury history is not great.. 4-5 million, if realistic, could be spent on a defender and strengthen the squad. But this is a division that with our current players + additions coming in we could simply outscore our opponants. I dunno, either way I eagerly await to see what defender(s) we bring in.
