McCarthy: Happy with keepers
Wolves manager Mick McCarthy insists he is not planning to sell any of his goalkeepers.
McCarthy has a goalkeeping trio in Carl Ikeme, Wayne Hennessey and Matt Murray that is the envy of most clubs in the country.
Murray has recently been allowed to join Hereford on loan, whilst Ikeme is currently the preferred number one ahead of highly-rated Welsh international Wayne Hennessey.
But McCarthy insists that the odd loan is all that he will even consider for any of his goalkeepers.
"Someone might be able to go out on loan, but there's no way anyone will be leaving - not a chance.
"We're trying to get promoted, so why would we dilute our squad in any shape or form? We'll be trying to strengthen our squad, rather than dilute it.
"I've travelled around the world as a player at club and international level and I've never known a situation yet where everyone's completely happy.
"But then that's what competition for places is all about - if you only had 11 players, then you'd have 11 happy players.
"You wouldn't have a very good team though, once you had injuries and suspensions. When they're out, they have to fight like tooth and nail to get back in."
