Despite wanting to cut down the size of the squad, Wolves had some unwanted attention on transfer deadline day.
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. Literally no joke.
The headline grabbing move in regards to Wolves was the late loan bid by Celtic for striker Kevin Doyle.
That move was probably linked up to Norwich City's pursuit of Gary Hooper, but with neither move happening, it was good news for Wolves.
Wolves also confirmed that they rejected some other approaches for Saunders squad.
The media linked Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest with defender Stephen Ward, but whilst Forest got all tied up in regards to Peterborough forward George Boyd, they somewhere along the line lost sight (pun intended) of their interest in Ward and he remained at Molineux.
