Take-overs, Transfers & Ticket Sales

Take-overs, Transfers & Ticket Sales

Wolves fans go into this weekend with as many questions as they have answers to the shape of next seasons squad.

While the final legal minutae of Steve Morgan's takeover may be the only thing holding up the sale of the club, it seems clubs holding the contracts of players they covet are eyeing his £30m investment as closely as anyone, determined to ensure they get he largest slice of the pie possible.

Transfer rumours roll on, with Freddy Eastwood and Billy Sharp still at the centre of most of them.

Southend have rebuffed an improved Wolves offer for Eastwood, and a £1.5m bid from Norwich, whilst Sharp's agent has been quick to air his clients warm first impressions after meeting representatives from Norwich, in what on the face of it appears to be a case of 'last chance gentlemen, put your best offers in now' offensive.

Both club's are rightly holding out for the best they can get for their prized asset's, but with the news Burnley have turned down a bid for striker Kyle Lafferty, at least the club are demonstrating they have other avenues to explore if the market value of their prime targets enters into Golden Tit territory.

The most intriguing news came midweek in a Sky Sports News interview with Steve Bull, where the club legend intimated that Morgan's much talked about cash injection would be tiered over 3 years, and not as some assume, one large chunk.

In that light, spending a third of your season's budget on two strikers who are still very much in the potentially good category would seem quite flambouyant by Mick McCarthy's usual standards, although no one doubts the need to secure the services of a clinical goalscorer, and they dont come cheap.

With CEO Jez Moxey claiming a second new signing is on the fast approaching horizon, Wolves fans have plenty to look forward to next week.

With less than two months to go to the opening fixture,season ticket sales are rising, and with them expectation that next season will be one to remember.

And for the second season running, it promises to be for all the right reasons once more.
