Wolves are in the process of making a bid for Bristol City’s Marvin Elliot.

Wolves are in the process of making a bid for Crystal Palace’s Ben Watson.

At least one of these statements is not true, but both are being reported as fact by different sources.

Of the two players, Watson who is out of contract this summer would seem the most likely to move to Wanderers.

Neil Warnock certainly believes he will exit the club, naming the last day of the transfer window as the most likey point

With Mick McCarthy looking to strengthen his midfield, that would require remarkable brinkmanship, and if the deal broke down would leave no time to make other arrangements.

Warnock has also gone on record to say that Palace have so far yet to recieve any offers for a player they are prepared to go to tribunal over to get what they believe would be adequate compensation for the loss of the 23 year old.

Elliott has given several assurances that his guture lies at Ashton Gate, but he wouldn’t be the first to go back on that kind of statement in a trice.

But to trigger that move Wolves wouldhave to offer some serious money to aquire his services, and the quoted £1.5 million seems a little low for this time of year.

You don’t hear anything for days, then two come along at the same time, and we’d be impressed if either of these tales turns out to be true.

Could be an interesting end to the week. A very interesting one indeed.
