Steven Fletcher: Has asked to leave Wolves
Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Steven Fletcher has revealed that he has handed in a transfer request at the Championship club.
The 25-year-old joined Wolves in 2010 from Burnley for a club record £7million fee and he has hit double figures in both his Premier League campaign with the club.
But now following relegation, he is seemingly determined to move, with Sunderland bidding for his services.
The Black Cats have had a couple of bids rejected this month and this has now prompted Fletcher to make his decision - which he revealed via his Twitter account.
"Just handed in a transfer request just to let the fans know where I am at right now," he wrote.
Wolves confirmed they had received Fletcher's request saying they will not let him leave until their valuation is met.
Their statement read: "Wolves can confirm that Steven Fletcher has handed in an official transfer request.
"The player's frustration stems from the fact that several bids have been rejected for his services, none of which meets the club's valuation.
"As previously stated, no player will leave Wolves unless the club's valuation is met.
"Wolves will be making no further comment at this time. "
