Target hands in request
Wolves have insisted that they will not allow Steven Fletcher to leave and join Sunderland unless the Black Cats meet their valuation.
The leading scorer for last season has handed in a written transfer request at Molineux and his sale looks to be a forgone conclusion but Wolves are determined not to let him go below what they feel is the market value for the Scotland international. Sunderland have made an improved £12million bid for 25-year-old signed from Burnley for £7million two years ago but that may not be enough. A Wolves statement reads: "Wolves can confirm that Steven Fletcher has handed in an official transfer request. The player's frustration stems from the fact that several bids have been rejected for his services, none of which meets the club's valuation. "As previously stated, no player will leave Wolves unless the club's valuation is met. Wolves will be making no further comment at this time."
