Is He, Isn't He?

Is He, Isn't He?

The wires have been humming all day with rumours that Wolves striker Kenny Miller is on the verge of signing an agreement to join Glasgow Celtic.

The historic move would see Miller become only the third player to represent teh two halves of Glasgow. Alfie Conn and Maurice Johnston being the only others.

Miller has persistently refused offers of a new Molineux contract, prefering to see out his current deal and become a free agent.

The club have been remarkably supportive of his choice, conceding that it's the best option for the 26 year old.

But Glenn Hoddle has always refused to rule out an about face from Miller if Wolves succeed this year and gain promotion.

An hour ago Jez Moxey issued this statement through the clubs official site. He said

'As far as we are concerned, nothing has changed regarding Kenny Miller,'

'Kenny remains our player and to date we have received just the one bid for him, from Sheffield United, but the player was not interested in going to Bramall Lane.

'However, it is quite legitimate for any player who has six months remaining on his contract, like Kenny, to speak to any other club outside of the country in which he is currently playing - those are the rules.

'For the past nine months we've tried hard to persuade Kenny to sign a new contract but he has consistently said he wants to wait until his current deal with us runs out before deciding what to do. He has also promised Glenn Hoddle that he would let us know if that positioned changed.

'We are aware that Celtic are interested in the player but, at present, we have no reason to think that Kenny will not remain at Wolves for the remainder of this season.'



But that would only discount an outright sale that would bring Wolves much needed transfer funds, a silver lining to a very dark cloud.

But it's believed that Celtic have no intention of paying a penny for Miller. They intend to sign a pre contract agreement with the Scot that will see him walk away from Wolverhampton for nothing.

If that is the case, all eyes will be on Miller for the rest of the season to see if his legendary work ethic starts to slack as his exit gets nearer.

Any signs that he's counting out time won't go down well with the Wolves fans who have always offered Miller phenomenal support everytime he plays.

The deal is expected to be signed in the next couple of days, but 2 days can be a lifetime in the hectic Janury transfer window.

Any hopes Wanderers fans had of a Miller change of heart seem to be fading fast. At Vital Wolves, we just hope his commmitment doesnt join them.
