Business Concluded

Following a fairly frenetc spell of transfer activity, Wolves have declared that Mick McCarthy's spending spree is concluded.

In total, Wolves have aquired 9 players on transfer or season loan, starting with Gary Breen, and ending with Jemal Johnson.

'It's a short period of time to have brought in that number of players,' CEO Jez Moxey told eth clubs official site.

'We are pleased with the work that has been done so far and that's been down to the manager making quick, positive decisions about his targets. Likewise, once those decisions were made we moved as decisively as we could to ensure the signings happened - it's been a very busy summer.

'The new additions have boosted the squad and seen us enjoy a better start to the campaign than many would have predicted before Mick's arrival, but we know we face tougher opponents in the coming months.

'We do not envisage doing any further business today but we will continue to do what we can to strengthen the squad either through loans or in the January transfer window.'

Unfortunately for Brazilian trialist Vladimir Giordani, this means that his display in yesterdays behind closed doors friendly with Preston was insufficient to impress Mick McCarthy.

'He played well but Mick told me that he didn't think he was a player who would improve the squad,' Jez added.

With limited resources available, signing 9 new players that can certainly be said to have strengthened the squad, is no mean achievment.

Particularly on the budget Mick McCarthy has had to work with.

If only previous incumbents had managed the same, things may now be looking very different.
