Mick McCarthy has dismissed speculation linking Wolves with Newcastle striker Andy Carroll.
The Wolves manager tried to sign the England Under 21 international in the summer but a move failed to materialise.
Carroll has since helped the Magpies mount a strong promotion challenge and Chris Hughton insists he will not be leaving in January.
McCarthy has no plans to make another approach, saying: "We were interested in Andy Carroll in the last window but Newcastle didn't want to sell then and I haven't enquired since.
"We were interested in Andy Carroll in the last window but Newcastle didn't want to sell then and I haven't enquired since.
"In any case, I would imagine with them being top of the Championship, they don't want to sell now either."
Wolves' record signing Kevin Doyle has impressed since moving to Molineux, netting five Premier League goals.
Strike partner Sylvan Ebanks-Blake has scored just once, a penalty against Aston Villa, but McCarthy has been delighted with his recent form.
"I think Sylvan's last three games have been different class," he said.
"He has just had a child and probably sleepless nights and lifestyles change because of it.
"In the last three games Sylvan and Doyle have been brilliant together and a good partnership is blossoming."
