Wolves go into the 2015/16 with one of the best keepers outside the Premier League in Carl Ikeme and their fans will be relieved if no club from the top flight looks to sign him this summer. He has been Wolves first choice keeper since 2012 and has got better and better since that time and hopefully he will remain the man between the sticks for a long time to come.

But Wolves have very little cover for a keeper who has had his share of injuries during his career and surely must bring in another shot stopper this summer.

When Ikeme was injured last season, the club had Tomas Kucszcak as cover and he did a decent job as a stand in. Many assumed the former Man Utd keeper would be snapped up to continue that cover role. But the Pole has now signed up for Birmingham City leaving Wolves with no experienced cover.

The third choice keeper from last season, Aaron McCarey, failed a drug test recently and if that is upheld after scrutiny of a second sample he will almost certainly face a long ban that will effectively rule him out of the 2015/16 season. That would leave untried 20 year old Jon Flatt as the second choice. He has yet to play for Wolves but has had short loans at Wrexham and Chesterfield.

So a new signing looks inevitable and we wait to see if they sign an up and coming keeper to challenge Ikeme or go for another experienced keeper like Kucszcak for that safe pair of hands.
