Wolves cool Pennant rumours

07 July 2010 09:36
Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy has denied reports linking his club with a move to sign former Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant. The 27-year-old currently plays his football in Spain with Real Zaragoza, but is rumoured to be keen on a return to England after falling out of favour during the second half of last season. However, McCarthy says that talks over a possible deal have not got underway as yet. He told the Express & Star: "It's an interesting one, but I haven't been offered him or spoken to anyone about him. "That doesn't mean to say I'm not interested in him." Pennant was once the most highly-rated youngster in the English game, moving from Notts County to Arsenal for £2million shortly before his 16th birthday. However, has since failed to live up to his potential at the likes Birmingham City and Liverpool.
