Rumour Mill-Stephen Elliott plus Cash for Laffs?

Rumour Mill-Stephen Elliott plus Cash for Laffs?



Wolves may offer the Clarets a £2.25m cash deal plus Stephen Elliott for forward Kyle Lafferty according to the Express & Star

Mick McCarthy will have to beat off bids from Rangers and Celtic though to secure the player

Rangers, it is understood have already bid £2.5 million for the 20-year-old, Northern Ireland International and reports in the Daily Mirror today suggest that a bid of £4 million cash may have been made by Wolves suggesting things are hotting up.

Stephen Elliott, is a 24 year old Irish International striker born in Dublin.

Mick McCarthy, then manager of Sunderland signed him from Manchester City in June 2004 for a fee of £125,000, set by a tribunal, with extra payments linked to his performance. He scored 22 goals in 81 appearances for the Black Cats.

Elliott then linked up again with his former boss by moving to Wolves on 17 July 2007 for an undisclosed fee believed to be around £750,000.

He has however scored just 4 goals in 22 appearances for Wolves and looks to be out of favour.

Elliott also has nine caps for the Republic of Ireland. He scored his only and only goal to date against Cyprus in a 1-0 win during the World Cup qualifier in October 2005.

Already two reported rumours concerning bids by the same club in different papers and both with different offers! Shish!

The 4 million sounds like a better deal to me. If Wolves bought him for 750k, then that makes that offer worth 3 million. We would get a player back though. Only worth it if Owen is interested with that player.

Vital Wolves reckon they rate Elliott at £1.75 million now, hence if you add the £2.25 m you get the £4 m I suppose!

How can they add 1 million on his value with his record since he has been there? Done nothing there to suggest he is any better and does not play regularly.

McCarthy got it right at Sunderland but not it seems at Wolves! Probably something to do with Eastwood coming in, I suspect
