Wolves braced for further Steven Fletcher and Matt Jarvis bids

Wolves manager Stale Solbakken is bracing himself for the potential loss of two star men from his squad before the August 31 transfer deadline.

Solbakken, appointed this summer as the new boss at Molineux, saw his side win for the first time at home since December as they recorded a 3-1 victory over Barnsley.

But events at the club are now likely to be dominated by the transfer market and whether their two main assets, Steven Fletcher and Matt Jarvis, will be sold.

Fletcher remains a target for Sunderland, although Solbakken denied Black Cats striker Connor Wickham is being lined up to move to Wolves as part of a deal.

"I think it will be busy times for us. If we lose Fletcher, Jarvis or both we have a tough job to do," Solbakken said.

"We will have to rebuild the team in a way and that will probably take a little more time.

"I’m not expecting anything. At the moment anything can happen any day with players in or out. Every player has a valuation and someone will make that final decision.

"I’ve had my say and I think we’ve agreed on what the valuation is. We have to make the decision that’s right for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

“But I want the transfer window closed now. That would suit me.”

Jarvis has been the subject of at least two failed bids by West Ham but is 1/2 with bookmaker Sky Bet to have joined them by the transfer deadline and 7/4 for a move to Fulham.

Wolves are a best-priced 11/1 with Bet365 to win the 2012-13 Championship title.
