Wolves' hardball approach on transfers has been rewarded after the club secured top signings Roger Johnson and Jamie O'Hara on cut-price deals, it has emerged.

The club paid just over £4m to Birmingham for Johnson for a flat fee with no add-ons.

That figure is nowhere near the £7m 'confirmed' by Blues at the time, or the £6.4m that was widely quoted in the days after the deal was completed.

Midfielder O'Hara cost them £3.5m, well below the £5m reported when he signed from Tottenham.

Reports suggested Blues had initially wanted staggering £14m for Johnson before dropping their price to £10m then £9m.
