When I mentioned that Fulham were interested in the Wolves midfielder, Kevin McDonald, I was ridiculed by Wolves supporters.

One, in particular, suggested there was no way that the player would leave Wolves and their magnificent stadium and state of the art training facility to come to an antiquated old club playing in a rubbish stadium.

Well it appears our article suggesting Fulham were bidding for McDonald and that the player was having thoughts of leaving Wolves have been borne out with McDonald, when interviewed by Sky Sports, remarking,

‘Wolves offered me a contract which didn`t really indicate to me they wanted to keep me, it was just like a basic increase, it wasn`t like they were pushing to keep me, fighting to keep me, that`s the way it felt. That`s gone now. We said we wouldn`t be signing that contract. Negotiations are hopefully going to be ongoing.

“I never really got told by the club (about Fulham’s interest), which is not the best. I thought someone from the club would come and say something to me, but I don`t think the manager (Kenny Jackett) knew about the bids either. When I spoke to him he didn`t really seem like he knew too much about it. But yes, two bids got put in and were rejected.

“Fulham are a huge club, and obviously I knew the interest was there, but I didn`t think much was going to come of it until the bids came in. At the end of the day when you are coming into the last year you have to weigh up all your options. You don`t want to be going into your last year – it`s very unsettling, you don`t know exactly what`s going on, to be honest with you.

“I`ve spoken to him about it and he realises I`m a bit unsettled at the club just now, and unfortunately that`s not the best of feelings. [We are] … still trying to get something sorted and take things from there and get settled, and get back to the main thing which is obviously playing football.”

Don`t blink Wolves fans, you just might lose your main-man to that antiquated club down by the River Thames!
