WOODGATE TURNS DOWN WOLVES MOVE

Jonathan Woodgate has turned down a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the transfer window on a loan deal. McCarthy had hoped to recruit Woodgate, who is on the comeback trail after a career-threatening groin injury, in order to shore up his backline.

"He doesn't want to do it, he wants to fight for his place there, so fair play to him," McCarthy told the free bet website.

"I haven't spoken to him, but that's the message I've got back."
