Wolves cool Pennant rumours


Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy has denied reports linking his club with a move to sign former Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant.

The 27-year-old currently plays his football in Spain with Real Zaragoza, but is rumoured to be keen on a return to England after falling out of favour during the second half of last season.

However, McCarthy says that talks over a possible deal have not got underway as yet.

He told the Express & Star:"It's an interesting one, but I haven't been offered him or spoken to anyone about him.

"That doesn't mean to say I'm not interested in him."

Pennant was once the most highly-rated youngster in the English game, moving from Notts County to Arsenal for £2million shortly before his 16th birthday.

However, has since failed to live up to his potential at the likes Birmingham City and Liverpool.
