Stoke winger Pennant joins Wolves on emergency loan

October 15, 2012

Stoke City winger Jermaine Pennant has joined Championship side Wolves on a three-month emergency loan deal. Pennant has been a mainstay of the Potters team in recent years, but he has fallen down the pecking order at the Britannia Stadium and moved to the Midlands on a temporary deal.

The former-Arsenal and Liverpool winger has stated that he has no desire to leave the Potteries on a permanent deal and he has not fallen out with boss Tony Pulis, but he is moving to play regular first team football. Wolves are currently in good form in the second tier of the English game and are third in the Championship table.

However, Wolves are currently missing the attacking midfielders Slawomir Peszko, Razak Boukari and Stephen Hunt through injury. Pennant will offer Wolves another attacking option and he will hope to get some game time while he’s at Molineux.

Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Stefan Maierhofer has left Molineux to join Red Bull Salzburg in his native Austria.

Maierhofer joined Wolves from Rapid Vienna in 2009 but made only nine appearances for the club in an unhappy two season stint. He also had spells on loan at Duisburg and Bristol City during his tenure at Molineux.

The 29 year old forward has an impressive scoring record in Austria, netting 38 times in 60 appearances for Rapid between 2007 and 2009. He is also a regular with the Austrian national football team.

Young Liverpool midfielder linked with Wolves loan switch

July 21, 2011

Wolverhampton Wanderers are planning to take highly rated Liverpool youngster Jay Spearing on loan next season. Spearing was a regular in the Liverpool midfield during the latter half of the 10/11 season in the absence of Steven Gerrard but the return of the skipper from injury, plus the signings of Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam, may restrict his first team opportunities this season.

Spearing only recently signed a contract extension, thus showing that Liverpool do see a future for the diminutive midfielder at Anfield. Reds boss Kenny Dalglish will be keen to continue the youngster’s development and hence may agree to farm him out on loan.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy wants to strengthen his midfield options and views Spearing as the right candidate to shore up things in the centre of the park.

His form even attracted the eye of England boss Fabio Capello who gave him a senior cap in the recent friendly against Ghana at Wembley.

Jarvis has been with Wolves since June 2007 when he joined them from Gillingham and will enter his fifth season at Molineux in August.

He made 27 appearances and scored 6 times including an opening day goal at Stamford Bridge. But a foot injury would rule him out for the start of the 2010-11 season.

Official: Wolves sign Steven Fletcher

June 3, 2010

Wolves have splashed out £7.5million – a club record – to complete the signing of Burnley striker Steven Fletcher. The Scottish international impressed with his forward play even though Burnley were relegated from the top tier. He managed to score eight times in 35 appearances – a record which will only improve with better players to support him. The fee paid for Fletcher surpasses the £6.5 million they had paid for Kevin Doyle a season ago.

The 23-year old Fletcher has signed a four year contract at Molineaux with an option to extend it by another year. While playing for Hibernian, Fletcher had caught the fancy of scouts at Real Madrid and was mooted as the next big thing to come out of Scotland. But he ended up switching to Burnley instead.

In some more good news for Wolves fans, captain Jody Craddock put pen to paper on a new one-year deal. The former Sunderland player was quoted as saying – ” It’s brilliant to get the contract sorted and signed. It’s another year for me at Wolves, which is fantastic.”
