Wolves ‘inquire’ about Burnley defender Tarkowski – claim

Wolves have inquired about Burnley defender James Tarkowski as Nuno Espirito Santo looks to strengthen his defence. The Times claim the 26-year-old England international is the subject of Wolves’ and other interest too, with Leicester targeting him and Brighton’s Lewis Dunk in case Harry Maguire moves to Manchester United or Manchester City this summer. Burnley are in no hurry to sell and Tarkowski still has three years left to run on his contract. But the attraction of Europa League football is bound to be of interest to the Mancunian former Brentford centre back, who has been capped twice and was…

Wolves are ‘a team full of quality’ – Leicester boss Rodgers’ reaction to first fixture

Brendan Rodgers claims Wolves are a ‘team full of quality’ after his Leicester City side were handed a home Midlands derby against them on the opening day of the Premier League season. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side make the short journey across the Midlands on Saturday, August 10 in a repeat of Leicester’s first home game last season, when the Foxes won 2-0.

Don: Three signings for the spine to help Wolves to top six

Don Goodman has revealed he would improve the entire spine of Wolves’ team this summer to help them try to reach the top six. The former Wolves striker, who told www.wolvesbite.com earlier this month that his old club can finish in the top six next season, now informs us they should be looking to strengthen the centre back, central midfield and striker positions – and possibly a goalkeeper, if John Ruddy decides he cannot remain on the fringes, this summer. The attacking options are under scrutiny after former club record signings Ivan Cavaleiro and Helder Costa were made available for…

Mick defends decision to ditch Wolves’ Doc

Mick McCarthy has defended his decision not to play Wolves wing back Matt Doherty in Ireland’s last two games, but admits he ‘loves’ him. The 27-year-old was forced to sit out the 1-1 draw away to Denmark and the 2-0 win against Gibraltar, with captain Seamus Coleman preferred at right back and Ireland manager McCarthy reluctant to give Doherty another chance at wide right. The former Wolves boss brought Doherty to Molineux in 2010 from Bohemians and he has gone on to play 252 times in gold and black. McCarthy stressed he remains a big admirer of a player he…

Mick should find a place for Wolves’ Doc – legend

Wolves man Matt Doherty’s continued exile from the Ireland team has been criticised by one of their country’s greatest footballers. The wing back had to again be content with a place on the bench as Mick McCarthy’s side beat Gibraltar 2-0 at the Aviva Stadium to go top of Group D on Monday night as they look to qualify for Euro 2020, with captain Seamus Coleman again at right back. But Ireland legend Liam Brady believes McCarthy should find a place for Doherty. The 27-year-old scored eight goals and provided eight assists in all competitions as Wolves finished seventh in…
