There have been no developments in the contract situation regarding Kevin McDonald and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The contract dispute evolved into somewhat of a crisis earlier this month when Kevin McDonald went to the media to reveal that he was unhappy with the contract offer he has received to stay at Molineux and that he was disappointed that he was not formally told of the interest from Fulham.
Rumours of Fulham’s interest begun at the start of June when an initial bid of £1.25million from Fulham had been rejected by Wolves, the Express & Star even reported that the the first bid would be dismissed ‘out of hand’ which should have ended the matter.
But it was soon clear that Fulham were preparing a second bid, our friends at Vital Fulham believed that bid was imminent and we said that Fulham must feel that an agreement could be reached, otherwise why would they waste their time?
That second bid came and went as Wolves also rejected it, which prompted McDonald to speak to Sky Sports and reveal that he is currently unhappy with his current situation.
‘Wolves offered me a contract which didn`t really indicate to me they wanted to keep me.’ he told Sky Sports.
He added: ‘It wasn`t like they were pushing to keep me, fighting to keep me, that`s the way it felt. That`s gone now. We said we wouldn`t be signing that contract.’
Speaking about Fulham’s interest he said: ‘I never really got told by the club, which is not the best. I thought someone from the club would come and say something to me.’
It would be nice to think that Wolves would like to resolve this situation as quickly as possible, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.
Speaking about the 26-year-old Wolves head coach Kenny Jackett told the Express & Star: “He has a year of his contract left, it`s not like the Sako situation where he`s not here, he`s contracted to Wolves, he has a year left.
He added: “There hasn`t been an agreement and there hasn`t been an update, it`s something we understand that we have to address but it hasn`t been settled yet.”
Jackett went on to reiterate how important McDonald is to the side, but it’s quite clear that words won’t cut it and only a deal that suits the player will resolve this issue.
