Wales Boss Toshack Expects Hennessey Premier League Move In January


Wales manager John Toshack has claimed that he would not be surprised if Welsh No1 Wayne Hennessey left Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers in January, with Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur leading the chase for the young goalkeeper.
revealed exclusively on Wednesday that there was already a deal in place to take 21-year-old Hennessey to White Hart Lane, with a source close to Wolves revealing that it was a “done deal” that Hennessey would be joining Spurs when the transfer window reopens.

“While officials at the club questioned McCarthy’s decision to drop Hennessey in favour of Ikeme,” A source close to Wolves told

“McCarthy has taken the stance that he doesn’t want an unhappy player at Wolves and will leave him on the bench until he is sold in January.

“Talks have already taken place and a move to Spurs in January is a done deal at around £6million.”

Wolves, manager Mick McCarthy has dropped Hennessey from the side at the Molineux Stadium in favour of Carl Ikeme recently, with Toshack believing that if the keeper is not playing regularly then a January switch to a Premiership club looks very much on ther cards.

Toshack said: “Wayne has been outstanding for us and he is certainly up to Premier League standard.

"He has made good saves against Czech Republic, Germany and Russia and there's no doubt he is ready to go up to the highest level."

“I know Mick has used the other Wolves goalkeepers quite a bit and I know a few clubs are interested in Wayne.

“Maybe if he is not performing regularly, there could be a move for him in the pipeline."
