If you thought that Wolves were going to be able to keep hold of all our top players, look away now.

With Wolves set-up so well financially, we are not in the position that many clubs find themselves in following relegation from the Premier League.

None of our top earners will remain on ‘Premier League’ wages whilst in the Championship and we do not need to cash in on anyone to balance the books.

But unfortunately we do know, that this is the era of player power and it is very different to keep hold of anyone who doesn’t want to stay.

“My honest opinion is Kevin Doyle will go, ‘Fletch` will go, I think Matt Jarvis is another who will go and I think Roger Johnson will go.

“I think Karl Henry will have the option to go.’ former Wolves man Chris Iwelumo told the Express & Star.

The big striker of course has experience of a promotion winning campaign to the Premier League and he also brings an interesting player perspective on the scene at Molineux.

Iwelumo continued: “Premier League football is the golden carrot. West Ham and Stoke have been linked with ‘Jarvo`, Sunderland and Villa have been linked with ‘Fletch` and Reading with Doyle.

“All the teams who have gone up will look at the teams who have gone down and look to prise these players away.”

Will any of these sides make bids that would tempt Moxey to sell? Or will we start to see players trying to engineer a move away?

Another player who could be set to leave is young striker Sam Vokes.

The Wales international has never really made the break through at Wolves.

Still only 22-years-old he joined Wolves from Bournemouth four years ago, but has only made 4 league starts in that time.

Instead he has spent much of his time away on loan with Leeds United, Bristol City, Sheffield United, Norwich City, Burnley and Brighton.

He has been linked with a summer move to both Brighton and Burnley and the Lancashire Telegraph have today reported that Burnley manager Eddie Howe has remained interested in taking Sam Vokes as their fourth striker to join Charlie Austin, Martin Paterson and Danny Ings in their Championship challenge.

Brighton of course also remain interested while there is also the prospect of new gaffer Ståle Solbakken taking a shine to him and reigniting his Wolves career.
