Asked if he was worried whether other clubs would come in for his star men, Kean said: ""Yes, I think they will.
"That won't be a surprise. That's a reality with any team.
"I was doing it myself. I was thinking a few weeks ago, 'Who do we think is going to go down and who have they got who could do us?' "I think that is just natural.
"Clubs will look at us and they will look at Wolves and I will be expecting there will be a lot of interest in a lot of our players.
"We are attempting to keep the majority together and build a squad that can bounce back."
