Wolves have no intention of selling Fletcher

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has made it clear that he is not looking to sell in-form striker Steven Fletcher this winter.

The 24-year old Scotland international has netted six Premier League goals in just ten appearances (five in his last six) so far this term which has subsequently seen him emerge as a January transfer target for rival clubs.

But McCarthy insists the former Burnley will not be departing Molineux anytime soon.

"He's a Premier League player scoring goals so he's going to get headlines. Players always do when they're scoring goals," McCarthy told Express & Star.

"No. If I say yes then I've suddenly put him up for sale haven't I? So, categorically, no," McCarthy said to him being a transfer target.

"All Fletcher can do is play and score, for his career here and his Scotland career.

"He's still only a young man, so all he can do is keep playing well and scoring. It's a great feeling as a footballer to be playing well.

"He's a very good player, he's excellent. It's his all-round game, but as with all strikers it's his goals that top his performances off.

"And he wants to score. He loves scoring."
