Jarvis wants out

Wolverhapton Wanderes manager Stale Solbakken confirmed last night that West Ham transfer target Matt Jarvis had handed in a transfer request.

The Championship club claimed earlier in the week that the Hammers has made a 9million bid for the once-capped English international - an offer that was flatly rejected.

However the winger signalled his intention to leave Molineux yesterday when he handed in a transfer request - a move confirmed by Solbakken.

"He wants to leave but it has to be right for Wolves," said the Norweigan coach. "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 but we have to fight through this."

Jarvis, who moved to Wolves from Gillingham for 600,000 back in 2007 missed Wolves' match with Aldershot yesterday although Solbakken insisted that the 26-year-old was ill.

"This is a true story and you can believe it or not," he said, "but he is actually sick. He is a good guy in a stressful situation at the moment."

Jarvis' sole appearance for England thus far came against Ghana in a 2011 friendly.
