Mick rules out keeper sale

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has denied reports that he may be forced to sell one of this three first-team goalkeepers in the interest of squad harmony. Wales international Wayne Hennessey and Carl Ikeme have been competing for the number one jersey at the Championship leaders this season. However, the return from long-term injury of former England Under-21 international Matt Murray - who has joined Hereford United on loan this week - has given McCarthy a further selection headache. "Someone might be able to go out on loan but there's no way anyone will be leaving - not a chance," he told the club's official website. "I've travelled around the world as a player at club and international level and I've never known a situation yet where everyone's completely happy. "But then that's what competition is all about, if you only had 11 players then you'd have 11 happy players. "But you wouldn't have a very good team once you had injuries and suspensions. When players are out they have to fight tooth and nail to get back in. "We're trying to get promoted so why would we dilute our squad in any shape or form? "We'll be trying to strengthen our squad rather than dilute it."
