Wolves accept Fulham offer for Richard Stearman - report

Wolves are believed to have accepted a bid of £2million from Championship rivals Fulham for defender Richard Stearman.


The 28-year-old was Wolves' player of the year last season - but was surprisingly left out of the squad for today's game against Charlton Athletic.

Stearman has been Wolves skipper since Danny Batth picked up an injury at the end of last season.

He has one year left on his contract - but Wolves have the option of extending that by a year.

If Wolves did sell Stearman it would leave Kenny Jackett short of experience at the back, with a team that has already struggled defensively this season.

Fulham were chasing team mate Kevin McDonald earlier this summer, having two bids of around £1m rejected.
