A whole host of Premiership club’s are being touted as possible suitors for wing wonder Michael Kightly.

Manchester United, Aston Villa and now Everton are all said to be showing interest in the former Grays man who has been a revelation since signing for Wolves.

Did these teams not know of Kightly before Wolves snapped him up for £25,000?

Or perhaps a Premiership players’ weeks wages was too much to gamble on Kight’s abilities, without seeing him turn out in The Chamionship first?

Sir Alex Ferguson did at least try and hijack Wolves deal with Grays, based on a gentlemans agreement, by issuing a ‘name your price’ challenge.

But even that implies an arrogance on his part in thinking Gray’s would accept and renege on a previously made arrangement at seeing pound signs.

Given that McCarthy has been aware of Kightly for some time perhaps the current slew of Premiership managers coveting Kightly should pay more attention to the domestic lower leagues, and less attention to the foreign multi-million pound signings their budgets allow them the luxury of making.

And stop trying to poach our Kights!
