Wolves hero Richards confident keeping hold of Raul

Wolves hero John Richards is convinced they can keep hold of Raul Jimenez.

Richards, who scored 194 goals in 485 games and won the League Cup twice during his time in gold and black, believes Wolves are operating from a position of strength when it comes to the Mexican.

“Wolves are in a good position. They don't have to sell," said Richards to the Express & Star.

“They're in a strong position financially and there is no pressure on them to sell.

“First of all, it's whether anyone is prepared to spend what would have to be silly money to get him. That's the only thing that would tempt Wolves to do it.

“I just feel Wolves have got the upper hand at the moment in all the negotiations. They're an ambitious club.

“There are not many strikers of that sort of standard around, so why would you let one go? He's got another three years left on his contract, so there is no pressure whatsoever from a club point of view.

“The only way I can see him going is if Jimenez says himself that he doesn't want to play for Wolves anymore. And I haven't seen anything to say that's the way he's thinking."
