Confirmed: Four players have to look for other clubs

According to the sometimes well informed local paper Express & Star four players have been told that they can leave Wolves.

The four now looking for new clubs are Andy Keogh, Stefan Maierhofer, Greg Halford and Matt Hill.

Je z Moxey said to the E&S:

We’ve had one or two enquiries about Andy, but that’s all it is at this stage. We’re concentrating on getting players out at the moment.

Moxey also confirmed that they are looking to sell Keogh on a permanent rather than to loan him out.

Keogh has been of the interest of Doncaster Rovers to pair up with old team mate Billy Sharp – but Donny wanted to take him on a loan (see HERE).

But Leeds United are said to be interested in signing our talented striker on a permanent (see HERE).  In that case he could end up playing together with old team mate Neil Collins again, who recently signed for the yordies.

Tall Austrian fashion playboy (and striker) Stefan Maierhofer has been told to leave as well. His manager Hagmayr says to Skysports:

We are talking to some clubs about Stefan and there has been interest in Germany, but nothing concrete as yet. Normally Stefan wants to stay and play at Wolverhampton, but he has been informed that he should go as the manager does not count on him. We will now wait and see what offers come in for Stefan.

There are rumours out that Sheffield United, Salzburg and a couple of German clubs are interested in signing The Hoff. The asking price is believed to be around a million pounds.

I have seen no rumours about clubs interested in signing Halford and Hill, but my informed readers may fill in on this?!

As I have said before I would rather have seen Keogh go out on-loan. I still see him as a future bright star in football, but perhaps Wolves are not the right club for him at the moment. I can see his skills come to use and develop in a club that play him as a second striker in the hole.

About the others they have not shown to me that they have the skills necessary to play in Wolves first formation. Some may disagree about Halford – because he has special skills that can come to good use – but his overall play is not up to the level of many others in the club in my opinion.

If I’ve counted correctly we can make room for at least two new players if we offload these four. Mancienne is on the table and there has been a constant rumour about N’Daw. But I would guess that McCarthy want to sign only one of them and the preferred option is probably Mancienne.

But why not Ireland and O’Hara instead? That would – I’m certain – mean a spot on the upper half of the Premier League for Wolves. But there are many clubs out there who wants to sign them.

  1. Mairhofer is Austrian, not German.

  2. Dont be daft Paddt Ireland would never come to this club – neither could we afford his wages if he would!

    Ooops – I mean Paddy and not Paddt!!!!

    • Unfortunately you are probably right. I looked it up after I’ve written it and Ireland is on £50.000 a week. But I could chip in a few pounds a week. And dreams are for free. 😆

  3. Nowt wrong with dreaming Paddy!
    Where I think we did miss an opportunity was wuth Steve Sidwell who I understand has just been sold to Fulham for only £2M!!
    At still only 27 I think he could have done a job for us in midfield….

    • I believe he wanted to move back to London and with Martin Jol soon appointed manager of Fulham he snubbed West Ham. I don’t believe Wolves would have had a chance even if we overbid Fulham, astraltrader.
