Wolves chief executive Jez Moxez has denied claims that the club had rejected a £4.5 million bid from Fulham for winger Matt Jarvis.

Reports early on Friday suggested Martin Jol's side had lodged a bid for the 26-year-old and that the Molineux outfit had rejected the offer.

However, Moxey set the record straight, speaking to the Express & Star: "It's just not true. I don't know where that has come from.

"We spoke to them a long time ago but I can honestly say we haven't had a bid from Fulham for Matt Jarvis.

"I am close to their chief executive Alistair Mackintosh and we've spoken a lot, so if there was that level of interest, I would know."

Jarvis scored eight Premier League goals in 37 games last season, despite Wolves dropping out of the Premier League after finishing 20th under former boss Terry Connor.

And new manager Stale Solbakken has recently admitted that he faces a battle to keep the wideman and team-mate Steven Fletcher at the club ahead of the new season.

Middlesbrough-born Jarvis received his first - and so far, only - England cap in 2011 after being called up by then-coach Fabio Capello for a friendly clash with Ghana.

He has been at Wolves since 2007, when he was brought in from Gillingham by Mick McCarthy.
