Steven Fletcher joins Wolves to become joint-record signing

3 06 2010

Fletcher scored eight times for Burnley last season.

After a couple of weeks of speculation Wolves have sealed a deal for Burnley’s Steven Fletcher.

The fee is undisclosed as per club policy but it matches the amount paid for Kevin Doyle last summer. He has signed a four-year-deal with the option of a fifth year in Wolves’ favour.

I told you earlier that the deal was set to be completed tomorrow but obviously Sky were wrong and the deal had been completed when he Compton earlier this afternoon.

Here is a picture gallery of Fletcher who is pictured with Mick McCarthy.

I think it’s a great signing for Wolves, what do you think?

Fletcher has seven caps for Scotland, scoring one goal.

Sky Sports News sources understand that Steven Fletcher will have a medical at Wolves tonight before signing tomorrow.

Fletcher was pictured at Compton this afternoon and is set to complete his medical this evening.

It’s the striker who has been touted to come to Wolves all week and it now looks as though it’s finally going to happen.

A fee of around £7million has been banded around and Wolves look to have beaten off competition from Blackburn and Birmingham to sign the Scottish international.

Fletcher scored eight goals for Burnley last season.

Steven Fletcher in talks with Wolves

27 05 2010

Wolves are in talks with Burnley’s striker Steven Fletcher. 

Sources confirmed to the Express & Star and SkySports.com today that the Scot is having discussions about a move to Molineux. 

Chief executive Jez Moxey claimed two weeks ago that Fletcher was not on Mick McCarthy’s hitlist. Moxey told the Express & Star at the time: “I know what I’m dealing with and he’s not one of them.” 

If the deal goes through then the fee is likely to be higher than the  £6.5million Wolves paid Reading for Kevin Doyle. 

Fletcher was Burnley’s top scorer last season with 12 goals.
