Freddy Ready?

There are a growing number of reports emerging that Wolves are set to up their Ferddy Eastwood bid to 2 million pounds.

The Times Online quotes Southend chairman Ron Martin as saying

"We have allowed Freddy to hold talks with Wolverhampton Wanderers,'

"They have upped their bid to a level which meets our minimum value for him. We don't want him to leave but it's cost effective and will allow us to reinvest in the team."

But the deal is far from done and dusted.

Newly relegated Charlton Athletic are also keen on signing the former Grays man who has close to a 1 in 2 games goal ratio for Southend.

The report goes on to suggest Eastwood will attend a medical at Molineux this evening, and following a clean bill of health, take his place in McCarthy's squad for pre season training, although reports in the local Southend press suggest that medical took place last night.

Signing Eastwood in the face of competition from newly relegated Charlton would be a real coup for Mick McCarthy, desperate to find a 20 goals a season striker for the coming campaign.

Charlton are expected to up their offer today in an attempt to hijack the deal.
