Could Steven Fletcher be the first man to leave Molineux this summer?

The rumour mill had indicated that if anyone was likely to be the first one out of the exit door then it was going to be Matt Jarvis.

The midfielder had been linked to literally half of the sides in next seasons Premier League and one team from Serie A in Italy.

But while weekend rumours built over a possible move to Stoke, with Stoke boss Tony Pulis apparently matching the £8million asking price, Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey denied the stories.

“They haven`t even spoken to us about him.” Moxey told the Express & Star.

Now considering we don’t usually comment on speculation, some will wonder why Moxey decided to comment on this story?

Was it to try and settle Matt Jarvis ahead of pre-season, or was it to try and get the process moving on a little?

Reports in the Birmingham Mail suggest that Wolves have agreed a relegation clause with every member of the clubs squad, so that all of our players are now earning significantly less than they were during the Premier League days (yes even including Roger Johnson), so personally I cannot see why would be desperate to move him on as financially, we should be in a very strong position.

Although finances probably do not come into play in regards to Steven Fletcher.

We all know the Scottish International is desperate to continue his career in the Premier League, that of course is the reason why he signed for us in the first place following Burnley’s relegation.

His next move according to the Daily Mail could be to Sunderland.

Sunderland have been linked with Fletcher already this summer, but things apparently could be beginning to move if Sunderland lose Stephane Sessegnon to Spurs.

Vital Wolves Comment: The news about the relegation clause that hands a pay-cut to all of the squad is significant news.

We all knew that the club was being run prudently and this is another indication of that.

Big earners like Roger Johnson, Steven Fletcher, Matt Jarvis, Jamie O`Hara and Kevin Doyle will now be on more realistic wages, putting us in a much better position when deciding whether or not we want to keep these players or cash in.
