Wolves ready to sell Shackell

On-loan Canaries defender Jason Shackell has been told he is no longer wanted at Wolves. Mick McCarthy's preparations for life in the Premier League has started with a clear-out of his fringe players at Molineux, and that includes the 25-year-old, who moved from Norwich to the Black Country last August only to return on loan in February having failed to hold down a first team place.

McCarthy wants to recoup some of the estimated �1m he paid for Shackell, and that could rule City out of the equation, whether they survive the drop or not.

Shackell made just three Championship starts for Wolves where he had a host of rivals for the centre back spot - and where McCarthy is hoping to strengthen even further in the summer.
