Wolves fans, brace yourself for two possible exits this week. Sunderland have made a second bid for Fletcher, whilst we continue talks with Stoke over Kightly.
Sunderland would appear to be edging nearer an offer acceptable to the Wolves board. Their first offer was thought to be around the £10million figure, but an improved second bid appears to have boosted the overall value of a proposed deal to £12million.
That fee would be split into £10million up front and £2million coming in stages and it would seem that the board are considering it, although deny having already accepted it.
“Rumours that we have accepted a bid from Sunderland are incorrect,” Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey told the Express & Star.
“They want the player, but we haven`t accepted anything.”
But the offer must be close to an acceptable fee, as the E&S believe the bid has brought the two clubs to the ‘negotiating table’, that of course is unconfirmed, but is wholly believable.
One thing that is confirmed is that Michael Kightly has been given permission to talk to Stoke.
Kightly has 12 months remaining on his contract and Ståle Solbakken has said that he would consider selling to re-coup some funds for possible future transfers.
Well Stoke made an approach and that would appear now be close to completion.
“We have agreed a fee with Stoke City about the transfer of Michael Kightly, which is now subject to Michael agreeing personal terms and completing a medical,” Moxey told the official Wolves website.
But Jez was also quick to point out that we had offered Kightly a new contract at Molineux and that it was the player who was pushing for a move.
He added: “It has been Michael`s wish to seek a fresh challenge and try and remain in the Premier League if at all possible, rather than sign a new contract to extend his stay with us here which has been offered to him.
