As Wolves try to maintain their status in the Premier League,the step up to find a striker is underway with Carl Cort top of the list.Talks are
expected to begin tomorrow after they approached Newcastle about his availability.
Signed from Wimbledon in 2000,it seems Newcastle are willing to cut their losses on a player they paid £7 million for.Yet to feature in the side this
season Cort may welcome a move to Wolves who tried to sign him last season before they won promotion from the first division.With the lowest amount of
goals in the premier league Wolves will certainly need his scoring power to try to keep them from the relegation zone.
Carl Cort underwent his medical yesterday evening and just has to sign on the dotted line,he will join wolves for a fee of about £1,5000,000 from
Newcastle.There was other interest in him from Portsmouth,Fulham and West Brom but Cort has decided he wan't to join Wolves and help them in their
battle for relegation.
Cort completed his transfer on Sunday after undergoing a rigorous medical.The 26-year-old has been plagued with injuries since his £7million move from
Wimbledon to St James' Park in 2000 and, as a result, never had chance to establish himself in the first team.The clubs, however, appear to disagree
on the fee with Wolves claiming they have paid £2million for the player while Newcastle saying they have sold Cort for £1.6million.
