Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey has rubbished speculation that Mick McCarthy is set to quit the club for the vacant Republic of Ireland job.
Moxey is adamant that is not the case and believes the constant rumours about McCarthy's future are far from helpful at such a pivotal point of the season.
He told the club's official website: "Having to respond daily to national newspaper speculation is not helpful, at a time when we are trying to focus on the job at hand - namely, trying to strengthen the team if we can.
"Naturally, the manager is playing a leading role in trying to identify players to acquire during this transfer window, as well as preparing for games.
"Despite what is being written, it is business as usual at Molineux."
