Wolverhampton Wanderers pursuit of striker Aaron McLean appears to be heading into a dead end.

Following Peterborough anager Darren Ferguson’s comments yesterday, Posh Director of football Barry Fry has added his two penneth.



Wolves have made two bids which were instantly disregarded. They are miles below what we would consider a proper fee for a player with Aaron’s goal-scoring ratio.

‘They have been persistent in their attempts to sign Aaron, but I did tell them last week that they were wasting their time. We are not a selling club.’ Fry said in the Peterborough Evening Telegraph.

An understandable stance to be taking given McLean’s strike record and the possibility of an even bigger payday for the club should he continue his constant improvement.

So what would Barry consider to be a fair fee?

In todays market, it would be more than double the £1m bid Wolves are said to have tabled already. POssiby even double that.

Which is an awful lot of money for a player as yet untested in League One, let alone Championship and above.
