Wolves keeper Matt Murray has played down talk of possible interest in him from Premiership clubs and pledged his future to the Championship side. The 25-year-old was again in excellent form on Saturday during his side's 1-1 draw against Birmingham at St Andrew's, sparking fresh claims he could be snapped up by a top-flight side in January's transfer window. However Murray, who has battled back from long-term injury problems throughout his career, is focusing on helping Wolves return to the Premiership. He said: "I'm enjoying playing my football for Wolves. They've always been brilliant with me and stuck by me through all of my injuries. "Just staying in the team is the biggest thing. If anything did happen, it would be up to the club but I'm just concentrating on playing for a great club in Wolves. "I want to get into the Premiership with them. We believe, with the squad we've got and the manager (Mick McCarthy), we can be promoted. "Moving is the last thing on my mind. If we get promoted, I want to play this time instead of being on the treatment table." Meanwhile, Wolves have also been boosted by owner Sir Jack Hayward's confirmation that he will make funds available for new signings in the January transfer window, despite his efforts to sell the club. He said: "Mick McCarthy is doing a wonderful job and I'm prepared to back him in January."
