Rumour Mill-Plus Potter say Wolves

Wolves have now bid 2.25m plus Stephen Elliott and added Darren Potter in an attempt to sign Kyle Lafferty

The latest offer is reported in today's Daily Mirror.

Vital Burnley previously linked Elliott to a Wolves player-cash deal for Lafferty last month and you can read about the player in this article link:

Rumour Mill-Stephen Elliott plus Cash for Laffs?

Darren Potter is a Republic of Ireland International midfielder. The Liverpool born, 23 year old is a product of the Liverpool Academy. He started out in the Everton youth team and then Blackburn's before going to Liverpool in 2003.

Potter made his senior debut for Liverpool in August 2004. He came on as a substitute for Steve Finnan in a UEFA Champions League qualifier against Grazer AK, playing the last five minutes, and the whole of the return leg at home.

Loan spells at Southampton and then Wolves followed and it was Wolves who offered him a permanent move during the January 2007 transfer window.They paid 250,000 in a three-and-a-half year deal.

However under Mick McCarthy, things didn't work out for the scouser and he was offered a way out in this year's January transfer window but refused. He then stayed with the Molineux side until the end of the season before being transfer listed.

The Clarets should really take this offer, two players for the price of one and a load of dosh besides. Lets close this deal and move on

but i would rather see him go to scotland as wolves are promotion rivals

Dont think I care where he goes to be honest, just want to get shut now and close this sorry saga so we know where we stand. The money will come in useful to build the squad before the new season starts or it might help us to up the bids for players we are after. Two players coming in would be a bonus and help us get back to the numbers we need.

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has made a bid worth 3.5m according to Daily Mirror so they rate Elliott/Potter as being worth a total of 1,25 million. So not quite the min 4 million we put on Laffs
turfmanphil
bite their hands off, get two vital new players in and offload the big headed pixie :D

This is the most attractive bid I have seen so far and we should go for it as you say Martyn
turfmanphil
Owen Coyle should be picking the players we sign NOT Mick McCarthy , if these 2 players were not on Coyle's want list , why would we want them ? I'd suggest these two were not good enough for Wolves , so they are not players i'd want at BFC ! NO DEAL !!
Bernie Lee
Not fussed either way, if we dont chuck in the players, then accept the 3,25 million,if that's what McCarthy rates Laffs at. Having said that Elliott and Potter dont sound too bad and it could be a good way of getting the squad size up with players who are good squad players. Coyle might be tempted but either way, I wish this sorry saga would come to an end soon and Laffs fate decided. We know though that Coyle does like Riordan and has played with Gow at Airdrie, so an Owd Firm player cash deal might be a better bet
