The Norwegian boss is keen to secure the services of the central defender, who sees his current deal expire at the end of the season.

Berra has only missed one league game for the Molineux club this term, and Solbakken believes he has seen real improvements in his performances.

The Wolves boss told the Shropshire Star: "We're in talks with him, so we will see where it ends.

"Berra has been outstanding. He's gradually getting better and better.

"He's not Franz Beckenbauer, but he's improved tremendously. I think he had a tendency to make excuses for everything, but he's grown mentally.

"I think he had to sort out his head in terms of being tougher with himself."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
