More than likely, he would.
Mick: is he coming here?
Sheepshanks: nah, Wolves just accepted a bid of £3m from Reading

Its more than likely he is either quoting that (probably incorrect) figure as a way to divert attention in a "we didn't get him because another club spent crazy money" sort of way. Or he has decided that's how much Wolves would have asked for.
I would be surprised if Wolves valued a player they didn't want at 3 times what they paid for him a year ago.


They knew we were desperate?

“I thought we had him coming on loan, but he’s gone there for three million quid or something,” McCarthy revealed after the Tractor Boys’ pre-season friendly win over Peterborough."

Can't see us paying 3 million for a player and then complaining about inflated transfer fees.. my guess is the touted > 1million is true.


If that's the case why don't the club say what they paid? Would a Championship Manager go on record saying that if it was a lie?

Firstly, he doesn't even say it's £3m, he says £3m or something, suggesting he doesn't know. Secondly, why and how wouldthe Ipswich manager know what Reading paid Wolves for someone he didn't want to buy?

He's just pulling a figure out his arse whilst he sulks. It's blatantly prone to exaggeration even if he does know. He has a vested interest to make out someone who gazumped him paid over the odds to appease his fans.

So desperate we're not biting on Norwich's valuation of Oliviera or Newcastle's for Darlow. Clearly we're desperate enough to pay wolves anything.
