Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has shrugged off growing interest in goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

Aston Villa and Manchester City have been linked with the young shot-stopper, but McCarthy told his club's website: "We get a list of scouts that are coming to our games so we know who's looking. But I would expect Wayne to be watched.

"It's the same at any club when you have someone doing well.

"It doesn't matter a jot. He's under contract. We look at so called smaller clubs and the Premiership look at our League."

Hennessey signed a new deal in August that ties him to Wolves until June 2010.
