THE fans might not be happy, but Wolves man­ager Kenny Jack­ett has de­fended the de­ci­sion to al­low Richard Stear­man to leave and join Ful­ham.

Stear­man moved to Craven Cot­tage for £2mil­lion on trans­fer dead­line day af­ter spend­ing seven years with Wolves.

He was named Player of the Year at Mo­lineux last sea­son, but Jack­ett is adamant mov­ing the de­fender on is in the club’s best in­ter­ests.

“He was al­lowed to leave be­fore I was here – to Ip­swich on loan – and then was part of the side at Wolves go­ing up from League One,” Jack­ett said.

“For the last two years he’s been a good player for me and I do ap­pre­ci­ate what he’s done, I re­ally do.

“I do feel, also, you have to make de­ci­sions to move the club for­ward.

“We wish Richard all the best at Ful­ham.

“But things can’t stand still.We have to move on. We feel, and I feel, it’s the right de­ci­sion and the right time.”
