Pato New Deal Softens Fletcher Loss
Steven Fletcher passed a medical at Molineux yesterday and subsequently signed for Wolves for an undisclosed fee penning a four-year deal.
The money we received for Fletcher was a club transfer record but depending on which media story you read the amount agreed was anywhere between £5.5 million and £8 million!
It was certainly much higher than our previous record deal when we received £3,25 million for Kyle Lafferty in the summer of 2008.
Clarets fans will be disappointed at losing Fletcher but at least there was some good news regarding Martin Paterson.
Pato has shown further commitment to the club by signing a one-year contract extension up to 2013. He originally signed a four-year deal when he arrived from Scunthorpe United in the summer of 2008.
