Wolves won't be making two big moves during the transfer window.

What the papers say

Olivier Giroud and Divock Origi will not be heading to Wolves over the transfer window, the Daily Mirror reports. The Molineux outfit had reportedly been keen to bolster their attack with the signings from Chelsea and Liverpool, but Nuno Espirito Santo has been told there is no money available for the deals.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah is set to leave Old Trafford, with the 23-year-old turning down a new deal in favour of a move to Bayer Leverkusen, says the Manchester Evening News. The Dutchman joined United as a youth player in 2014, but only made three appearances last season.

Germany could beckon for Reading defender Omar Richards, according to the Guardian. Bayern Munich are keen on landing the 22-year-old, whose deal with the Championship side expires this summer, while Everton and West Ham are also said to be in the race for his signature.

Fernandinho may prolong his stay at the Etihad beyond the summer, reports the Daily Telegraph. The 35-year-old's contract expires in the summer and there are rumours of interest from clubs in Europe and South America, but the Brazilian could be tempted to stay at Manchester City.

Clubs north and south of the border are running the rule over Wigan's Kyle Joseph, with Tottenham, Sheffield United, Rangers and Celtic all keen on the striker, writes the Daily Mirror.
