Wolves striker Steven Fletcher has tweeted that he has handed in a transfer request, amid reports linking him with a move to Sunderland.
Fletcher told fans on the social networking site Twitter: "Just handed in a transfer request just to let the fans know where I am at right now.... #headsgone"
Wolves had earlier denied they had accepted a £12million bid from Sunderland for the Scotland striker.
The Black Cats had reportedly upped their bid following the rejection of an offer they made last week.
Speculation had reached fever pitch that the Championship side had finally relented and accepted an offer for their prized asset.
However, Wolves do not want to let the player leave for less than they believe he is worth and discussions are believed to be ongoing about a possible deal.
"Rumours that we have accepted a bid from Sunderland are incorrect," Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey told the Express & Star.
"They want the player, but we haven't accepted anything."
Aston Villa are rumoured to be closely monitoring the situation as boss Paul Lambert is an admirer of the striking ability of his fellow countryman.
