Mick McCarthy says he has been impressed with the footballing talent on show at the World Cup.
But the Wolves boss will be sticking to his long-held beliefs that you canâ€™t sign anyone on the back of a golden summer, reports the Birmingham Mail.
The Wolves boss was covering matches for the BBC in South Africa and enjoyed the experience.
â€śI saw a few I liked â€“ I thought the Slovenia right-back (Cologneâ€™s Miso Brecko) was really good and their goalkeeper (Udineseâ€™s Samir Handanovic) played very well against England.
â€śBoth centre-forwards for Paraguay (Borussia Dortmund duo Lucas Barrios and Nelson Valdez) played very well and Iâ€™ve kept the teamsheets in my bag.
â€śThe right-sided midfielder for Paraguay (Liga de Quitoâ€™s Enrique Vera) looked very good, but Iâ€™m not looking for one.
â€śI was impressed with the left-back for Mexico (PSV Eindhovenâ€™s Carlos Salcido) against Argentina, so there were some good players there.
â€śIf I see them again or their names come up, Iâ€™ll know who they are and theyâ€™re logged down. And as for the top players, we all know about them.â€ť
McCarthy is wary that despite the obviously high calibre of players from overseas, they can struggle to adapt to the English game.
â€śWeâ€™ve seen players come into the Premier League on the back of tournaments before â€“ Dennis Rommedahl signed for Charlton in 2004 after a good European Championships but it didnâ€™t happen for him at the time. I remember him playing for Charlton against Sunderland when I was there.â€ť
