Eastwood: No bust-up
Wolves striker Freddy Eastwood has rubbished reports that he has had a bust-up with Mick McCarthy.
The Welsh international has not started for Wolves for a month after being told by McCarthy to improve his game.
Eastwood insists he has no problem with McCarthy and is happy to learn under the former Sunderland chief.
"People try to say I've fallen out with the gaffer but it's not true," Eastwood told the Express and Star.
"He just felt he needed to change things around. I think I should be playing but I won't be going to see him and shouting about it.
"He told me that if I want to get back I'll have to work harder on the defensive side of my game. I just need to knuckle down.
"He brought me to the club and I'm happy he did. I could argue that I was scoring goals, but I am still learning all the time. And I want to learn from the manager."
Meanwhile, Wolves defender Mark Little has admitted he is considering going out on loan in a bid to get some much-needed first team action.
Little has struggled to establish himself in McCarthy's plans this season after injuring his ankle in pre-season.
The full-back is now weighing up the possibility of going out on loan to improve his fitness.
Biding my time
"I'm just biding my time at the moment. It has entered my head to get myself out and get some games," he admitted.
"It is my choice really - do I want to stay and wait for an injury or someone to suffer a drop in form or do I want to go out and get games?
If I was to go into the manager's office and ask to go out on loan then it might not look right - and if he's looking for someone to step in at left-back, for example, then I might miss out.
"But at the same time it is frustrating because I think I've got something to offer at Championship level."
