West Ham have moved a step closer to signing Matt Jarvis after a £10 million bid was accepted by Wolves yesterday.
According to the Metro, Wolves – who have been attempting to fend off interest in their players after relegation last season – has refused to sell Jarvis for anything less than £10 million.
The Hammer’s boss, Sam Allardyce, conceded however, that he knew very little about the deal, he said:
“It’s on the top political level now because every player has a valuation and if that valuation is matched I’m in the discussion. It’s not my money so someone will make a final decision. I don’t know if the two clubs are still talking. I’ve had my say and the final call will be taken. We do it together and we’ll do the best for Wolverhampton.”
Jarvis signed for Wolves in 2007 after impressing at Gillingham where he started his career. In five seasons at the Molineux he has played 172 games and scored 21 goals, in years that included promotion and relegation battles.
In 2011 the 26-year-old made his debut for the England senior squad but has since not been selected to play again.
Should the midfielder leave the club he would be the second of Wolves’ first eleven to move on this week. Sunderland have had a bid accepted in the region of £15 million for Steven Fletcher after pursuing the striker for the past few weeks.
Wolves currently sit 11th in the Championship after two games with one loss and one win.
