Wolves have sealed the permanent signing of Liverpool midfielder Darren Potter.
Wolves have completed the permanent signing of Liverpool midfielder Darren Potter.
Wolves chief Mick McCarthy has handed the Irish youngster a long-term deal at the Championship side after impressing since moving to Molineux on loan in August.
Potter leaves Anfield for a reported fee of around £250,000 after making just 17 first team appearances for The Reds.
Wolves are stepping up their efforts to strengthen in the transfer window and McCarthy says the club remain in talks to bring Scunthorpe striker Andy Keogh to the club.
"It is no secret we have been looking at Andy Keogh and would love to sign him," said McCarthy.
"We made a bid, which was rejected, but the clubs have remained in discussions."
However, Keogh's current employers insist that discussions with Wolves have gone cold after the Black Country club had two bids knocked back for the striker.
"Wolves haven't been in touch for some time now and I cannot second guess what they plan to do. The player is under contract and we're not keen to part," said Iron chairman Steve Wharton.
"Wolves made an offer for Keogh and I had a few conversations with Jez Moxey about 10 days ago, but we rejected a first and second bid and have heard nothing since."
