Wolves boss admits difficulties of holding on to star players

Wolves boss Stale Solbakken is expecting squad changes before the season kicks off next month, reports BBC Sport. Solbakken has acknowledged it will be hard for the Championship side to hang on to players subject to Premier League interest, such as Kevin Doyle.

"In football when you drop down a division I think there will always be players who will be attractive to the bigger division," said the Norwegian.

"It's impossible to say how many at the moment but it is always like this.

"I think there will be comings and goings," he said.

"I think you always want some fresh faces after a season like last season and there are also players who may find a challenge more suitable to their situation elsewhere.

"Every player is going to be important for us. So far everyone is here but I am sure it will continue to be discussed both inside and outside the club in the coming weeks.

"I think there has been interest but it's not for me to comment on any bids. I'll leave all that to the financial guys at the club to take care of."
