Wolves' cautious approach justified after Everton points deduction

Wolves have been vindicated for their cautious summer transfer window after Everton were docked 10 points for allegedly breaching financial rules.

Throughout a difficult summer, which ultimately saw Julen Lopetegui walk away from his post as head coach, Wolves offloaded around £140million worth of talent which included star names Ruben Neves, Matheus Nunes, Raul Jimenez and Conor Coady.

The club needed to turn a profit in this financial year so they did not breach the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules, previously known as FFP.
