McCarthy targets further deals

Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Mick McCarthy has set his sights on a number of further signings, having already drafted in Anderlecht defender Jelle Van Damme and Burnley striker Steven Fletcher.

McCarthy is happy with his first two pieces of summer business, while he is also preparing to allow some fringe players to move on, with striker Chris Iwelumo having already swapped clubs with Fletcher.

“There is a bit of business still to be done and there will have to be a few move on as well,” McCarthy told the Birmingham Mail.

“There are players who have helped us, but it comes to a natural progression that they will move on – you can’t just keep them here for back-up.

“We’d been trying to do Jelle Van Damme for quite a while and now Steven Fletcher. It makes us a better squad already with two very good players.

“I’m really pleased to have got two done as early as we have done, like we did last year. But we’re still looking for more and still looking to improve.

“It’s something that myself, Jez Moxey and Steve Morgan sat down and spoke about and said we were going to spend in the best way that we could to improve the team.

“We’ve already done that with Jelle and Steven and we’ll continue to look.”
