Keeping our options open

Keeping our options open

Ståle Solbakken refuses hint at what the future may hold for Ronald Zubar, Christophe Berra and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake.

The trio are all out-of-contract at the end of the season at Molineux and whilst we always used to deal with players contracts early, under the new gaffer, we don't.

Instead Solbakken prefers to leave players to fight for their contracts. With Christophe Berra the prime example, the defender previously handed in a transfer request, but is now back in the first team fold and fighting for his shirt.

Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is back amongst the goals, which is probably down to the Championship being more his level in comparison to the Premier League, rather than making any added effort to impress and Zubar of course has started five games so far this season.

Three key players, but all potentially free transfers come the end of the season.

"For those players going into the last year of their contract I think both parties are monitoring the situation.' the Wolves gaffer told the Birmingham Mail.

He continued: "If you asked Sylvan he would say he may be interested or may not be interested - that is what can happen when it gets to this stage and there is nine or ten months left and a difficult situation."

"You look at how many are on long term contracts and how many are on short term and do you want this money to be available or do you want to use it on this particular player? This is an ongoing situation and at the moment both sides are keeping their options open."

Vital Wolves Comment: If you were Ståle, what would you do in regards to Zubar, Berra and Ebanks-Blake? Would you keep them in limbo? Or would you not want to risk seeing them leave?

The trouble is if they all leave at the end of the season we will have lost over £6M in transfer fees.

Astraltrader sorry have to disagree we wanted two million for Berra and not one bid came in. E-Blake is not going to fetch two million only Zubar is worth that but not to an english club would have to sell him abroad.
