Christophe Berra's agent has hinted the Hearts defender would be interested in a move to Wolves.

Reports have claimed that Wolves have had a £1.5million bid rejected, with Hearts understood to be holding out for £2million.

Berra, who made his Scotland debut against the Czech Republic last Friday, has spent his entire career at Hearts and is under contract until 2011.

But the 23-year-old's representative Gary Mackey has suggested the player would be tempted by joining Championship club Wolves.

Very big club

"Christophe, like every other player, wants to further his career," Mackay told The Scotsman. "Wolves are a very big club who missed out on the English Championship play-offs narrowly.

"Their interest in Christophe shows their intentions to mount a serious challenge for promotion next season.

"The level Hearts attained last season compared to Wolves' level is pretty relative. Christophe, as an individual, has progressed this year in difficult circumstances.

"He's just made an international debut, so people like George Burley and Wolves manager Mick McCarthy are aware of his development."
