Matt Jarvis: Has asked to leave Wolves but will only go for the right price
Wolves manager Stale Solbakken has insisted Matt Jarvis will only be sold if it is right for the club after confirming the winger wants to leave.
Sky Sports revealed earlier on Saturday that Jarvis had handed in a transfer request, a day after a £9million bid from West Ham had been turned down.
Jarvis missed the Capital One Cup game against Aldershot through sickness and Solbakken admits the whole situation has been disruptive, while he will let the club decide on what happens next.
Solbakken, who has also seen Steven Fletcher and Christophe Berra ask for transfers, said: "He wants to leave but it has to be right for Wolves.
"At the end of the day I am not making the final decision.
"We are a little unsettled at the moment and everything is not fine. It is stupid to say everything is fine. We have to fight through this."
As for the absence of Jarvis, Solbakken added: "This is a true story and you can believe it or not but he is actually sick.
"He is a good guy in a stressful situation at the moment."
The uncertainty off the pitch is the last thing that Solbakken wants and he admitted he was a relieved man after seeing his side battle past Aldershot.
But Wolves needed a penalty shoot-out to progress - Jordan Roberts seeing the 14th spot-kick saved by Wolves' goalkeeper Carl Ikeme.
Wolves had taken a 53rd minute lead through Sylvan-Ebanks Blake only for Michael Rankine to equalise nine minutes later.
Former Cologne boss Solbakken said: "Some of our stuff was good and some not so good.
"We struggled to open them up but it was a deserved victory when you count the chances.
"The fans should expect that we are going to be a good team at home.
"But we lacked penetration in the last third of the pitch.
"That means that in some periods of the game I was disappointed we didn't create more chances.
"But if we had kept the 1-0 for another five minutes it could have been two, three or four. But the cup is about going through."
