Star’s price-tag continues to rise as Wolves join transfer fray

Published

Paddy McNair is fast becoming one of the most sought-after players in the transfer market and it looks as though Sunderland are going to use that to their advantage as much as possible.

The Black Cats are gearing up for a campaign in League One next season and, more than likely, will see McNair leave the club this summer.

They won’t let him go on the cheap though – as is their prerogative – with the Northern Echo now claiming that they want £7m before they let him go, with Wolves now in the transfer fray.

Brighton have already tabled £3.5m and are expected to return with a £5m offer so it looks as though Wolves will have to at least match that and, more than possibly, hit the £7m mark.

The Black Country side are returning to the Premier League for next season and will be eager to have a squad capable of challenging further up the table instead of just scrapping near the bottom.

Let’s see how much they want McNair.

The Verdict

He’s a good player and definitely better than League One but clubs need to be careful they do not start paying through the nose.

£5m would seem fine, £7m is starting to get towards the upper limit you’d go and, in all honesty, any more would be a bit of a poor deal given McNair’s injury record despite his obvious ability.
