Wolverhampton Wanderers recently lost the services of midfielder Karl Henry after he joined QPR for £ 1 million. The 30-year-old has been an influential part of the Wolves team over the years.
He was the former captain of the team, while also becoming the longest serving outfield player due to his years of service. After the club's relegation into the League One, it was highly speculated that Henry will be leaving Wolves. It has proven to be the case after the midfielder joined the recently relegated QPR by signing a two-year contract.
Kenny Jackett, who was appointed as the replacement for Dean Saunders, has said that he is confident that the club can cope without the influential midfielder. Since suffering the second consecutive relegation was going to be financially difficult for the club, Jackett placed a number of players like Jamie O'Hara and Henry on the transfer list. He reckons that the club will be able to replace them with younger players coming through the ranks. This will not only help the club bring substantial revenue through transfer fees, but it will also help them reduce the wages as well.
Wolves have made a good start to the pre-season under the regime of Jackett after they managed to win at another pre-season match.
"We wish him all the best. Personally I feel it was right for the club and right for the player to have a fresh challenge. On behalf of everyone at the club, I thank him for his service and we all wish him the very best at Queens Park Rangers. We have some young players admittedly in David Davis, Lee Evans and Jack Price, and also the experience of Kevin Foley. He's been somewhat of a utility player but still looked capable when he came on last night," said Jackett.
