Southampton tell Wolves to up bid for Lallana

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy must up his bid for Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana.

McCarthy's £500,000 move for Lallana has been branded "derisory" by Saints boss Mark Wotte, says the Daily Star.

McCarthy was hoping to snare highly-rated Lallana, 21, at a knock-down price following his £1.2m acquisition of Andrew Surman amid Saints' financial uncertainty.

Midfielder Lallana has refused to play in any of Southampton's pre-season games after telling Wotte he wants to leave the League One club.

Wotte said: "There is some interest for him and he would like to join a club in the Championship or ­Premier League.

"But as I have said before, we are not going to sell Adam Lallana for a cheap price. He is a quality player.

"So if there is a club interested they have to do serious business and not try to take advantage of the situation."
