Mick McCarthy rules out Jelle van Damme loan


Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has told Belgium international Jelle van Damme to stop moaning and start producing the goods on the football pitch.

The 27-year-old moved to Molineux from Anderlecht for £2.5million in the summer and made a solid start to life in England, starting the Premier League games against Stoke City, Newcastle United and Fulham.

However, he has failed to start a game since the early September victory over the Cottagers and was quoted in his homeland during the last international break as saying that he wanted to return to Anderlecht on loan in January.

However, an angry McCarthy told the Express and Star:"Let me clear something up, there's no chance of any loan deals. Jelle is a player with us and one of my squad of 25. He signed a four-year contract.

"No-one can go anywhere in October, November or December so every single member of the squad needs to knuckle down and win us some games, get us some points until the window opens.

"In some cases, like with Greg Halford, they might go out to get some football. But otherwise it's January. And when we get there, one or two of them might want to go or I might want to change one or two around.

"That's when we can do it. In the meantime it's a case of shutting up and getting on with it."
