Hahnemann keen to extend Wolves stay
Marcus Hahnemann wants to stay at Wolves for another two seasons and join the band of keepers who have played in the Barclays Premier League at 40.
Hahnemann's current contract runs out in the summer, but he believes he has enjoyed one of the best 12 month periods of his career after replacing Wayne Henney as first choice at Molineux.
The 38-year-old has often stated he wants to end his career back in his native United States in the MSL and will consider that option if no new deal is forthcoming at Wolves.
But Hahnemann is keen to stay with the midlands club for the foreseeable future as they prepare for the home meeting with Bolton.
Hahnemann, in an interview with Press Association Sport, said: "I want to stay at Wolves. Myself and my family really like it here, the set-up is great, the guys are great, the staff are great.
"Everything has been top notch since I've been here. There is no reason why I want to leave or anything.
"I'm just kind of waiting to see what happens. I can't stay if they don't want me to stay so we will just wait and see if they are going to offer me something.
"There are a couple of MLS teams and it might be an opportunity for me to go back.
"But if I have the choice I would like to carry on at Wolves for two more years if I was given the opportunity."
Hahnemann added: "I think I've been playing as well as I ever have been and I'm as fit as I've ever been.
"I feel fit and good enough to carry on at this level for another couple of years.
"It's been one of the best 12 months of my career. I've had good spells before but everything has been pretty remarkable since coming in here and getting the chance to play and play again."
Wolves boss Mick McCarthy will check on a trio of players injured against Arsenal in midweek before finalising his side.
Midfielder Dave Edwards was substituted after only eight minutes with a thigh muscle injury while defender Stephen Ward suffered a gashed leg in a challenge by Cesc Fabregas. Striker Kevin Doyle also broke a bone in his hand in the 2-0 defeat.
Centre-back Jody Craddock (hip) and right-back Ronald Zubar (ankle) are still out.
Bolton manager Owen Coyle wants to keep hold of Gary Cahill and Johan Elmander because they turn up for training with a smile on their face.
Chairman Phil Gartside set alarm bells ringing among the supporters when he indicated the duo might have to move on as the club's debt has risen to #93million.
Former Aston Villa defender Cahill is being coveted by a number of clubs while in-form striker Elmander is out of contract in the summer.
Coyle claims he is under no pressure to sell the players and received a boost when Cahill re-iterated it was "a real joy" to play for Bolton.
Coyle said: "I am well aware that Gary is happy. You only have to see how he is playing.
"Alongside Johan Elmander, Kevin Davies and Jussi (Jaaskelainen), these are the type of players I want at this football club.
"They all all look to be happy in their work, which I what I am after. If that is the case I can get the best from them.
"The conversations I have had with the chairman and the owner (Eddie Davies) I am not under any duress to sell players. If that was the case we would have done that back in August.
"If and when the right offer comes in for anybody you would have to look at it because of the business side of football. But I do not feel under any more pressure than I was two days ago to sell any players.
"Of course I would like Gary and Johan to stay as I am here to to try and build a team and take it on."
Gartside would also like to trim the wage bill and Coyle accepts that may happen in the summer when nine players are out of contract.
"It is something I am conscious of as I inherited most of the squad, " he said. "If it helps us financially it is something we might have to do."
Elmander has been unwell with a virus and came off in the second half of the draw with Everton in midweek.
His replacement Ivan Klasnic went on to open the scoring and is pushing for a place in the team as is Martin Petrov.
Joey O'Brien, Ricardo Gardner, Jlloyd Samuel and Sean Davis are all still sidelined.
Bolton survive late Wolves comeback
Bolton survived a late comeback by Wolves to take all three points from a thrilling contest at Molineux that ended 3-2 to the visitors.
The hosts dominated the opening period but shot themselves in the foot - as they had in their previous game - by conceding a goal in the first minute, Richard Stearman heading past his own goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann.
Second-half strikes from Johan Elmander and Stuart Holden gave Bolton a 3-0 lead, and although Kevin Foley and Steven Fletcher swiftly reduced the deficit, Mick McCarthy's side were unable to find the equaliser.
While the visitors will be delighted to have held out to keep their impressive form going, McCarthy's side remain in the Barclays Premier League's bottom three.
They have earned plaudits for their football over the last few weeks, but have taken only nine points from 13 league fixtures and results need to improve fast.
Wolves had caused Arsenal plenty of problems on Wednesday night in one of a string of creditable performances they have put in recently against top-four sides, but made life difficult for themselves from the off in that match by conceding a goal almost immediately after kick-off.
It seemed they had learned little from the experience as they again fell a goal behind only a few seconds in against the Trotters.
Lee Chung-yong's cross from the right was only partially cleared and the South Korea winger headed the ball straight back into the danger zone where Stearman, under pressure from Matt Taylor, nodded it past Hahnemann and into the net.
It was a disastrous start, but the hosts tried to rally quickly and their skipper Karl Henry forced a save out of Jussi Jaaskelainen with a lofted delivery. From the resulting corner, Matt Jarvis teed up Nenad Milijas, whose drive was blocked.
Moments later Sylvan Ebanks-Blake brought down Stephen Hunt's cross and protested that Gary Cahill pulled him back as he shaped to shoot, but referee Peter Walton ruled that the Wolves striker controlled the ball with an arm.
Kevin Davies then saw a shot saved by Hahnemann, before Ebanks-Blake hit the post at the other end - although replays suggested he had used his hand.
Wolves went the closest yet to making it 1-1 when Milijas rifled a free-kick at goal which Jaaskelainen did well to parry. The ball fell to Foley, whose floated cross was volleyed over the bar by Ebanks-Blake.
Milijas called Jaaskelainen into action again a minute before the break with a swerving shot and Bolton survived a scramble that followed shortly after.
Jarvis then broke into the box but was thwarted by the Finnish stopper.
Wolves' hunt for a leveller showed no signs of letting up as the second half got under way, with Milijas unlucky once more after his chip from the edge of the box clipped the bar.
Bolton attempted to wrestle back possession and Elmander was beaten to Davies' flick-on by Hahnemann.
The Swedish striker then laid the ball square to Fabrice Muamba, whose shot was deflected wide.
Jarvis, tipped to be in the England squad announced after the game, sent an inviting ball into the Bolton box but a handful of his team-mates had all run too soon and it drifted behind them.
The hosts looked to be in the ascendancy, but just after the hour mark, they were undone by a moment of magic.
Holden, who had brought a save out of Hahnemann moments earlier, played the ball in to Elmander, who had his back to goal but twisted and turned around a crowd of defenders before calmly finishing in the bottom corner.
Holden then got on the scoresheet himself, slotting Lee's pass into the net and Wolves looked dead and buried.
They swiftly pulled on back, though, as Foley collected the ball from Jarvis and angled it past Jaaskelainen.
Suddenly Wolves' tails were up and after piling on the pressure for 10 minutes, they grabbed another.
Jarvis was again the provider, sending in a corner which Jaaskelainen flapped a glove at but missed, allowing substitute Fletcher to nod the ball over the line.
The comeback appeared to be on, but nobody could get on the end of crosses from George Elokobi and Fletcher in the closing stages and Steven Mouyokolo glanced wide right at the end as Bolton made off with the win.
