Keogh on his way out?
A persistent rumour is running around that Wolves and Andy Keogh are in talks with Cardiff.
The rumour says that Cardiff wants sign the striker on a season long loan with an option to buy.
I thought that the hunt for Keogh would be off as the contestants – Cardiff and Coventry – already have signed other strikers, but Cardiff seem to fancy Keogh despite signing Manchester City star Bellamy on loan recently.
It is very possible that we will know more about this from the press conference after the ongoing game against Southend United.
In Cardiff Keogh will – in case of signing – join up with Bothroyd and Olofinjana again. They are playing Posh as I write this and Bothroyd actually scored after half an hour on a header. 1-0 in halftime in that game and Nat Mendez-Laing is on the bench for Posh from start.
Anyway. I believe in that Keogh rumour. The question is if Wolves will sign a new striker instead of Keogh and in that case who?
My answer to the first question is yes, we probably will. The second one is a little trickier. 😆
My money is on a young Norwegian that goes by the name of Erik Huseklepp. He is a skinny, tall target type of striker with a very good scoring record.
The nice thing about him from a Wolves point of view is that he can play at right wing aswell. A problem is of course that he has no experience of playing outside of his home country.
Why do I believe that Wolves will sign him then? Well. Firstly that it is a rumour about it. Secondly because he is a kind of target player that McCarthy likes and he is young and hungry. Thirdly because Wolves recently has brought on a scout that is an expert at the Scandinavian countries.
Let’s hope that everything will turn out to the best!
Oh. And in the match against Southend it’s 1-0 to Wolves. Goal on a penalty by Milijas after Winnall was fouled trying to burst through in the penalty area.
Up the Wolves!
