Wolves put Eastwood up for sale

Wales international striker Freddy Eastwood has been transfer-listed after just one season at Wolves.

The 24-year-old signed a four-year deal from Southend last summer, but has not scored since August - and most of his appearances have come off the bench.

"It's nothing personal, but it hasn't worked out how either of us would have liked," said Wolves boss Mick McCarthy.

"He hasn't fitted into my team but he wants to play and will do well elsewhere. We wish him luck."

It's been a difficult year for me, but I think I've still got a bit to prove

The seven-times capped striker said earlier this week that he believed he still had a future at Molineux.

"Overall I don't think I've done anything wrong for the manager or the football club," Eastwood told BBC WM.

"When I first came here I thought I was playing very well and scoring. It's been a difficult year for me but I think I've still got a bit to prove.

"Something's got to change because I don't want to be sitting on the bench for three-quarters of the season.

"Come the last couple of games I've been sitting in the stand, and it's been very dispiriting for me. Hopefully next season, one way or another, I'll be playing more."

The Wales international has had Wolves supporters calling for him to be included in McCarthy's plans more frequently.

Coventry City, who came close to signing Eastwood before the deadline in March, remain the favourites to claim his signature.
