Wolves boss targets new striker signing

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has hinted a new striker is among his top priorities during the January transfer window. McCarthy admitted: "We've got bids in for players but we can't do any business without someone else's permission.

"You put bids in and you're reliant on people accepting them or knocking them back.

"If that's the case, we move on to someone else. But we're still hoping of signing someone."

McCarthy added: "Us and how many others have been linked with (Jermaine) Beckford? Do you think his agent might be working overtime?

"But I would say if Wayne Rooney got injured at Manchester United or Liverpool lost Fernando Torres, or Tottenham lost Jermain Defoe, they would suffer.

"We would be the same here if we lost Kevin Doyle or Sylvan Ebanks-Blake."
