Latest Wolves news as Gary O'Neil provides an outlook for the summer transfer window.

Wolves may be forced in to selling one of their stars if they are to conduct any major transfer business in the summer, according to Gary O'Neil.

Several players have been linked with a move to Molineux over the last few weeks and months, but those plans may be halted. Wolves are keen to stay within the parameters of Financial Fair Play after seeing Everton and Nottingham Forest receive punishments and will not spend for the sake of it.

The club recently confirmed that it was taking up its £4.5m to buy option for Tommy Doyle, who will join the club from Manchester City permanently in the summer. Doyle as it stands could be the only player signed for a fee unless the club consider selling its most valuable assets to help fund moves for other players.

“I don't think there will be money available to us without selling a player,” said O’Neil to the Express & Star in his penultimate pre-match press conference of the season, as his side host Crystal Palace.

“The club is expecting in the foreseeable future to fund itself. But these things can change. I wouldn't expect it to be a summer where we spend millions and millions. "We'll have to do some really good business in the summer. It's difficult to answer until it gets going but we'll be doing everything we can."

Wolves' only signing of the January transfer window was Noha Lemina, who is yet to make his senior for the club. Chelsea striker Armando Broja was strongly linked along with several other forward options but they failed to materialise. The club did allow Sasa Kalajdzic and Fabio Silva to depart the club on loan though however Kalajdzic has suffered a serious injury and Silva has failed to impress during his spell with Rangers.

Pedro Neto is a player that Wolves could earn big money on with Manchester City and Liverpool both interested in signing him. It would cost around £60m for Neto to leave Wolves and they have already done business with City having sold Matheus Nunes to them. Max Kilman was subject of interest from Napoli and Spurs last summer, and given his performances after being promoted to club captain, is subject of interest from Manchester United.
