No Wolves move for Carroll

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has no plans to resurrect his interest in Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll.

The England Under-21 international was the subject of interest from the Premier League new-boys in the summer but McCarthy will not be looking to revive any deal in January.

He said: "We were interested in him in the last window, but they didn't want to sell then and I haven't enquired since. I'd imagine, with them being top, they don't want to sell now either."

McCarthy has also dismissed rumours linking veteran Birmingham City midfielder Lee Carsley with a move to Molineux but has not ruled out the possibility of Jason Shackell leaving the club on a permanent basis.

The 26-year-old has impressed Sean O'Driscoll during his time at the Keepmoat Stadium and the Doncaster Rovers boss is keen to make the switch permanent when the loan arrangement expires next month.

McCarthy added:"Doncaster want to keep Shackell, but there's been a bit of interest in him from another Championship club who've asked me about him.

"He's available and, if they want to do something, I've said 'come back to me.' If they do, we'll talk about it. If not, he'll more than likely stay on loan at Doncaster for the rest of the season."

Finally Neill Collins and Daniel Jones are set to complete permanent moves to Preston and Notts County respectively.
