Saunders expects clear-out

WOLVES boss Dean Saunders admits a host of players will be on their way out the door should the club drop into the third tier of English football this weekend.

Wanderers are odds-on favourites to suffer back-to-back relegations as they go into the final round of fixtures three points adrift of safety at the wrong end of the Championship table.

The likes of Kevin Doyle, Roger Johnson, Bakary Sako, Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, Stephen Hunt and Jamie O'Hara are just some of the high-profile names who would be faced with leaving Molineux or plying their trade in League One next term.

And Saunders will hold a meeting with chairman Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey next week when Wolves' fate is decided.

Saunders said: "I'd imagine a lot of the players won't want to stay. Once we get through this week and get to the end of the season, we'll probably have a meeting and draw a plan up."
