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.
