WOLVES today responded to the growing speculation surrounding Stoke and winger Matt Jarvis by insisting there had been no contact from the Potteries.

The rumour mill went into overdrive at the weekend after claims on website Twitter that Stoke had lodged an £8m bid for the winger. But chief executive Jez Moxey denied there had even been any discussions.

Speaking to the Express & Star, Moxey said: "They haven't even spoken to us about him."

Like team-mate Steven Fletcher, Jarvis has plenty of Premier League admirers.

There were reports three weeks ago that West Ham had bid £4m for Jarvis but these were strongly denied by Wolves, while Premier League newboys Southampton have also been linked with the one-capped England international.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis admitted his interest in Jarvis back in April before the two clubs played each other in the Potters' 2-1 win.

"We inquired about Jarvis, but unfortunately the deal had already been done," said Pulis. "He's a very good player."

Pulis tried to sign Jarvis after Wolves agreed his £600,000 transfer with Gillingham in 2007.
