Richard Stearman is determined to battle for his place at Wolves but could he have his head turned by Ipswich?

Ipswich manager Paul Jewell is reportedly planning a £1million bid for the defender.

With the signing of Roger Johnson, Stears has obviously dropped down the pecking order.

So would he favour a move to get regular first team football, or would he prefer to stay?

An interview with WOW would suggest he is happy to fight for his place and with him being quite versatile, capable of filling in at right back and centre half he does provide some useful options in a 25-man squad.

‘It’s going to be a big fight for the shirts at the start of the season and indeed throughout the season,’ he told Wolves Official Website.

He added: ‘Hopefully I can perform well and manage to take one of those shirts.

‘I’ve played at right back and centre back over the last couple of seasons and I think it’s sometimes good to prove your value to the team if you can play in different positions.

‘I’m happy to play in either position when required and it’s the old saying about not minding as long as you are on that teamsheet!’
