Wolves miss out on another target

Wolverhampton Wanderers had set their sights on two clear targets this summer, but have lost out to both Bournemouth and Hull.

It was clear that first choice summer transfer target had been Coventry City striker Callum Wilson, but Wolves were put off by the bidding from both Bournemouth and Norwich and the forward eventually signed for Bournemouth for 3million.

Another clear target was Sheffield United central defender Harry Maguire.

Wolves had previously placed a bid of around 1.5million for the 21-year-old with the two clubs holding talks regarding a possible move, only for Premier League side Hull City to also make a bid.

Their initial best reported bid could eventually be worth around 2million, but had around the same figure as Wolves bid as an upfront payment.

With Hull offering Premier League and European football next season along with probably an inflated wage packet, Wolves would not be able to compete financially.

However talks seem to stall at this stage and the chase had gone quiet for a few weeks.

Could the prospect of more game time at Molineux be what Maguire wanted?

The answer would appear to be no as this week, Hull and Sheffield United agreed a fee that could potentially rise to 3million, while Maguire signed a three-year deal.

Wolves head coach Kenny Jackett revealing that Wolves once again pulled out of the running for a prime transfer target.

"If people were asking if it was a three-way thing for that player, it wasn`t," he told the Express & Star.

He added: "We`ve said players who did well in League One last season are a category of player we`d like to take with us if we can. There`s a select few in that category that, if we could get in our team, we would.

"We`ve been aware of those but we haven`t been involved in this one."
