Gulf between Wolves and Fulham down to signings – Murphy

Danny Murphy believes the gulf between his former club Fulham and Wolves has been shown in their recruitment. Last summer Fulham appeared to give themselves a great chance of prospering in the Premier League by spashing out £100m on a host of signings, while Wolves attracted some criticism at the time for not pushing the boat as much, spending a more cautious £70m.

Their position was confirmed by Leicester City’s 1-0 defeat at Manchester City tonight, which means the Foxes cannot now catch them with one game of the season left.
