The experienced quartet have been deemed surplus to requirements by new boss Kenny Jackett as he prepares for life in the third tier.

Wolves have suffered back-to-back relegations over the past two seasons and are determined to stop the rot under Jackett.

Midfielder Henry has been with Wolves for the past seven seasons and has made over 250 appearances for the club, while O'Hara arrived from Portsmouth in a £5million deal in June 2011.

Defensive duo Ward and Johnson have also been informed they can head for pastures new, with Johnson having cost £7million from Birmingham two years ago, while Ward has been at Molineux since January 2007.

A statement on the club's official website read: "As a starting point to a reshaped squad, Wolves have confirmed that Karl Henry, Stephen Ward, Jamie O'Hara and Roger Johnson have officially been made available for transfer.

"Following the squad's return to pre-season training this morning, head coach Kenny Jackett spoke individually to the four players to inform them of his decision.

"Conversations had already taken place with the players' agents throughout the close season as Wolves prepare for the League One campaign."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
