Championship: Wolves take on Fulham the day after owner Steve Morgan puts the club up for sale

Wolverhampton Wanderers will play Fulham this Tuesday evening just 24 hours after their owner announced he is putting the club up for sale

Chairman Steve Morgan has decided to put his 100% shareholding in the Club up for sale after eight years in charge of the club, and will step down from the Board with immediate effect and day-to-day activities will continue to be managed by the Chief Executive with the current Board overseeing operations. 

In a statement, the club insisted, "While the process of finding a new owner is being undertaken it is very much business as usual for the Head Coach, players, staff and all other stakeholders involved with Wolves." 

"Steve would like to relay to all concerned that his ongoing commitment and financial support to Wolves will continue until a new owner can be found."

Morgan, 62, bought the club in 2007 from Sir Jack Hayward for £10, along with a guarantee of £30m in investment.

Wolves have made a steady if unspectacular start to the season so far, and travel to Craven Cottage to face a Fulham side who are also trying to make an impact at the top end of the table, but both are currently in midtable.
