Mick McCarthy has made it clear that just because he is now one of the richest Championship managers in the transfer market, it doesnt mean Wolves will be headhunting Premiership stars this summer.
Nor will he be bringing in players guaranteed to usurp the current crop who fought so hard to achieve promotion this campaign.
Instead, to msost fan's relief, he will keep faith with the youngsters who have brought the club so far in so little time, and put their interests above anybody elses.
'If there is the opportunity to buy new players we also have to be mindful that there are lads here who have brought relative success to the club this year.' he told the clubs official site.
'From where we were on July 26 it's been a wonderful year. We have to think of the players who have achieved that and everything that is done in the future will be done with those in mind.'
One key area many have highlighted in helping to bring success since McCarthy's arrival, has been the undivided dressing room now bereft of Premiership wage, former internationals, and something McCarthy will want to hold on to at all costs.
'What we want are players with the same sort of hunger that the squad has shown this year.That desire and real work ethic.'
Finding them may not be the problem. Finding them at the right price however, may.
Something McCarthy readily recognises
'It always happens that if someone has a value, and now that value goes up, it can be a problem but that's for others to sort out.
'Whether it's two-bob or two million it's the other people that deal with that side of things, myself, Taff Evans and Dave Boman (chief scout) just identify the players.' he added.
Something all three do very well.
