Wolves want Liverpool midfielder Jay Spearing on a season-long loan to complete their summer signings.

Manager Mick McCarthy has identified the pint-sized 22-year-old as the man to add bite to his central midfield.

Spearing has recently signed an extension to his contract and is highly-rated by Anfield manager Kenny Dalglish, with 20 of his 27 senior appearances for the Reds coming last season.

But Liverpool see a loan for Spearing, who had an 11-match loan spell at Leicester in 2009-10, as the best way to continue his development and they are likely to agree to him moving to Molineux.

Wallasey-born Spearing fits the Wolves profile as being young and hungry and is an infectious character who is a real livewire in the middle of the park.

McCarthy also watched Liverpool's 20-year-old centre-back Daniel Ayala on loan at Derby last season.

But Wolves still need to offload first before anyone is allowed to come and they are highly unlikely to buy anyone else now this summer.

That means McCarthy's planned move for a left-back looks like being shelved for now.
