It's no joke, Lee Evans is our only new signing

Transfer deadline day promised to be a busy day for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

New gaffer Dean Saunders had categorically stated that while he believed restructuring the team would take several years, he also made it clear that he would be aiming to do business in this transfer window, moving players on and moving players in to Molineux to improve the quality of the squad.

Wolves defenders Ronald Zubar and Steven Mouyokolo were both shown the door the day before deadline day approached, with Richard Stearman also leaving on loan and reports suggested that the likes of Birmingham City players Marlon King and Curtis Davies could be targets ahead of the window closing, with a number of other players linked throughout the media.

But as Sky Sports News worked themselves up into a frenzy, it was all quiet on the Wolves front in terms of players coming in.

Our only movement? The signing of 18-year-old midfielder Lee Evans from Newport County.

While I'm sure he's highly rated and probably a great coup for the future yadda yadda, we've heard it all before when signing the next big thing year after year.

Mick McCarthy was very keen on signing young talented players and look how many times that worked out for us.

But anyway, the Wales Under-18 captain makes the move for an undisclosed fee and will join the Development Squad on a two-and-a-half year contract.

"There has been a lot of interest from Premier League and Championship clubs in Lee.' Wolves Head of Development and Recruitment Kevin Thelwell said to Wolves Official Website.

"For an 18-year-old player it`s going to be a good step for him coming into the Elite Stage of the Under-21 league and those games - and the pace and intensity of training - will be different to what he has been used to even though he has been full-time at Newport.
"I very much see the remainder of the season being an induction into the Wolves way and into our style of play and getting him up to speed both mentally and physically and technically and tactically as well."

Welcome aboard Lee, but forgive us for holding judgement just yet.

If we are plying our trade in league 1 next season he will come in handy ... Where are all our "young and hungry" players... surely with the passing of time this should logically pay dividends... yet it doesnt... "Young and hungry" is nothing more than 'New speak' for "on the cheap" and the one or two who do actually shine quickly move on to clubs with ambition and direction... None of Fletcher's sale has been pumped back into the club, and niether will any of Sako's Ikemes or Dioumbias for that matter... They have somehow pacified the masses thus far, so Morgans RInsing of the club is sure to continue unchallenged for some time yet ... last night's performance the only slightly positive thing about the club right now, but we know this schizo side are not guaranteed to reproduce that any time soon.

Schizophrenic is as well as you could describe this group of players. We now have a few most likely, Ward being one example where it seems a bid was accepted but did not end up leaving. I think Ward is the type to get on with it which is a good thing cos he just scrapes the mark as it is so any dip would really leave a troubled left back slot. Leicester were hitting a lot down their right as it was last night. If others know offers were accepted and they are months away from leaving how will that affect them. Look at Blake last night- his head has been spun by all the uncertainty of his own situation because he missed two sitters last night. I have never been one to slaughter Moxey but the closing of another pathetic transfer window suggests DS is not the manager after all, the fat man with the greased hair is because he has either failed in his attempts to bring in players or refused to pay fees and wages being put in front of them and that leaves a team tinkering on the brink of relegation 4 players lighter than it was at the start of the week. That meeting identifying targets must have lasted all of five minutes.
