Wolves Exodus Set To Continue As Centre-Back Eyes Molineux Escape Route

Scot set to follow Fletcher, Jarvis and Kightly out of Molineux?

The exodus from relegated Wolves is gathering pace after centre-half Christophe Berra revealed he wanted to leave the beleaguered club.

The Molineux outfit, who finished bottom of the Premier League last season, have already lost Michael Kightly to Stoke, while the departures of Steven Fletcher and Matt Jarvis look imminent.

Former Hearts skipper Berra has now revealed that he wants to leave to keep his hopes of playing for Scotland alive.

The 27-year-old has been marginalised in pre-season, with new boss Sale Solbakken favouring a defensive pairing of Roger Johnson and Richard Stearman.

“A defender’s peak years are between 28 and 32,” Berra is quoted as saying in the Daily Record.

“I’m at the stage where I need to play first-team football week in, week out.

“I’ve got a year left on my contract at Molineux but I believe my future lies elsewhere. I feel as if I need a new lease of life and a change of scenery after three years in the Midlands.

“If it doesn’t happen for me then I’ll continue to give Wolves 100 per cent.

“We’ve got a new manager and it doesn’t feel as if I’m going to be a part of the club’s future, so I need to move away because that will stand me in good stead where Scotland’s concerned.”

Last week Wolves ‘reluctantly agreed’ to make Berra available for transfer, rather than risk losing him for free next summer. It is understood that Berra’s former club Hearts are interested in re-signing the talented stopper.
