Eastwood: Time to leave Southend

Norwich and Wolves target Freddy Eastwood is set to leave Southend this summer after revealing he thinks "it is time for me to move on".

And reports in Sunday's national newspapers claimed Wolves would land the former Grays frontman for £1.5million in the coming week.

"I want to move on. I've had three really good years but having had a taste of the Championship, it's where I want to stay," The 23 year old told the Southend Echo.

"I'm an ambitious person and my dream is to play in the Premiership. League One is a long way from there and that's why I want go.

"It's got nothing to do with the money, I just want to play at the highest level possible.

"I know Wolves have had a bid for me turned down but I would be interested in going there. I think they will go up next season so it would be a good move for me.

"They are a really big club and it would be nice to team up with former Southend team-mate Michael Kightly again."
