Wolves reject moves for trio

So far the Wolves exodus has been avoided, but for how long can we hold out with bids coming from Premier League sides Sunderland, Stoke and West Ham?

Wolves CEO Jez Moxey continues to re-iterate that the club will not formally discuss transfer negotiations with the media, but in doing so has again taken the opportunity to put forward our fairly strong negotiating position.

"We are not getting drawn on offers for players in or out, Our best players are not for sale and we want to keep them at Molineux and build the strongest possible team for the season ahead. he told Wolves Official Website.

He continued: "We will do everything we can to retain the players we want to keep and continue to look to strengthen the team with new signings where possible."

With Wolves strong financial position, we were never set to see a fire-sale of players like relegated Premier League sides have seen in the past.

Our player contracts are also all watertight, with every single member of the squad taking a significant pay-cut following relegation, which should mean that the wage bill remains manageable, for at least the period that we received parachute payments for (just in-case we do not bounce straight back up at the first attempt of course!).

With the position secure, we have reportedly swatted away our first approaches for Matt Jarvis, Michael Kightly and Steven Fletcher.

The Telegraph have reported that we did indeed turn down a 4million bid from West Ham last month, we all thought that was the case, but this would appear to be the closest to a reliable source that we can actually get.

The same paper believes we rejected a 2 million bid from Stoke for Kightly, while the weekends bid of 10 million from Sunderland has also been rejected.

It's all still early days of course and teams are likely to put in second bids and negotiate. With Kightly out of contract, Wolves must have a figure in mind that they would accept to prevent him walking away from Molineux for nothing, while one bid was never going to be enough to prize Fletcher away.

But the Scottish international is likely to move, so will Sunderland up their bid? Or will Fletcher put in a transfer request.

If the striker puts in a transfer request, he will lose out financially on the deal, but will put added pressure on the Wolves hierarchy.

For anyone hoping to see all three remain in the team for the opening weekend of the Championship season, 18 August must feel a long way away.
