Moxey rules out Best swoop
14 Oct 2009 - 11:39:24
Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey has cooled reports linking the club with a move for Coventry City striker Leon Best.
The 23-year-old former Southampton starlet is out of contract at the Ricoh Arena at the end of this season, prompting rumours to emerge that he could be a target for Mick McCarthy in January.
Best has already scored six goals for the Sky Blues this season, but Moxey said: "There's nothing in it - I'm happy to say there's no truth in this.
"Mick's always thought of Leon Best as a good player but we've bought Stefan Maierhofer and we still have Chris Iwelumo to come back from injury, so we have two players covering the role that player can play.
"Given the player's contractual status, I'd have thought he was more likely to allow his contract to run out and become a free agent."
