Wolves boss insists no Griffiths sale unless the price is right

Wolves boss Kenny Jackett has maintained that striker Leigh Griffiths isn’t going anywhere, despite speculation linking him away from Molineux this month, The Express and Star has reported.

Griffiths, who is the club’s leading goalscorer this season with 13 goals, was quoted saying that ‘it would be an honour to play for Celtic’ earlier on this week.

However despite the comments, Wolves boss Jackett has played down any talk of a move away for the forward unless the right offer comes in:

“If the phone rings, we’ll see, but it’s not something I’m going to worry about. He’s not someone we’ve transfer-listed or actively trying to sell, but it’s all hypothetical unless anyone comes in.

“It’s interesting to hear his comments on Celtic; they’re a big club and as a Scotland international now, that will be of interest.”

It was understood that the Scottish champions had approached Wolves about a loan move for Griffiths, but Jackett wasn’t keen, and a swap deal involving Callum McGregor was also discussed but no agreement was made.

But despite discussions with Celtic, Jackett insisted that his frontman is settled and hasn’t asked for a move away from the club.

“His attitude has been fine. He’s had no problems or caused us any problems, or expressed any desire to leave.

“It’s the first I’ve heard of it so we’ll see, and it’s important he keeps his head down and earns that place when he gets his opportunity” he added.

Griffiths had been in excellent form this season, scoring 12 goals in 26 matches, and guiding Wolves into the automatic promotion places, however he saw a dip in form which has seen him start only two of the last six games.
