Wolves: Steven Fletcher not for sale, despite Sunderland interest
Monday 30 July 2012
Sunderland have been given little encouragement in their pursuit of Wolves striker Steven Fletcher.
The Black Cats have tabled a bid for the Scotland international as manager Martin O'Neill attempts to rebuild his pool of frontmen, but the Black Country club's initial response appears to be a stubborn refusal.
Chief executive Jez Moxey told the Wolverhampton Express and Star: "We are not getting drawn on offers for players in or out.
"Our best players are not for sale; we want to keep them and build the strongest possible team for the season ahead.
"We will do everything we can to retain the players we want to keep and continue to look to strengthen with new signings."
