Potter in Wolves hint
13 Oct 2006 - 12:37:55
Loan midfielder Darren Potter has hinted that he could be interested in turning his switch from Liverpool into a permanent stay at Wolves.
The 21-year-old, who has made 17 appearances for Rafa Benitez's side, joined Wanderers on a season-long loan in the summer and has impressed greatly, despite being played slightly out of position on the right side of midfield at Molineux.
As a result boss Mick McCarthy has already discussed a permanent move with Potter and the deal could even go through during the January transfer window.
The only stumbling block is that Liverpool will want a six-figure fee for the player, who is contracted at Anfield until summer 2008, but Potter would be willing to make the move.
He told the Birmingham Mail: "Circumstances have dictated where I've played so far but the lads in the middle have been doing well and there's been no need for the gaffer to change anything.
"We're all here to do a job and make it tough for the gaffer to leave us out and hopefully that's what I've done on the right as well.
"Things have gone reasonably well for me so far, I think I've played in every game and feel I've done okay.
"It's been a good start, and in terms of anything longer you never really know.
"I've had a few chats with the manager about possibly making things permanent but that's probably something for a bit further down the line, maybe January.
"Who knows what might happen, but I don't see why this club shouldn't be one that matches my own ambitions.
"I've said before it's a sleeping giant, similar to Southampton where I was on loan last season in that the club should be higher than it is."
