Wolverhampton Wanderers FC has been put up for sale after owner and chairman Steve Morgan decided to put his 100% shareholding in the club up for sale.

Wolves have released the following statement:

Wolverhampton Wanderers FC announces today that after eight eventful and enjoyable years at the Club, and after much thought, owner and Chairman Steve Morgan has decided to put his 100% shareholding in the Club up for sale.

Steve 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.

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.

He would like to thank everyone connected with the Club for their support and backing over his tenure to date and, as always, wishes Wolves every success for the future.

“Everyone at the Club was shocked and deeply saddened to learn of Malcolm’s death.

Not only was he a member of the Wolves Hall of Fame and a legendary former player, but he remained part of the fabric of the Club becoming Chairman, and then recently, President, of the Wolves Former Players Association, working tirelessly on behalf of former players for a number of years.

Our deepest condolences got to Malcolm’s partner, Angela, his daughter, Sandra and her husband, Mel, and all his family and friends.”

Norwich City Football Club has suspended two supporters allegedly involved in racist abuse at last Sunday's match against Wolves.

The Canaries said the fans had been banned from attending games at Carrow Road pending the outcome of an investigation.

The club received a number of complaints from Norwich supporters who were at NCFC's opening match of the Championship season at Molineux.

"If, as a result of our investigation, the club is satisfied any individuals are guilty of racist behaviour, we will issue them with lifetime bans from attending games at Carrow Road."

City has passed its evidence on to police who are also investigating the matter.

Wolves fans warned against pitch invasions

Wolves fans are being urged to stay off the pitch ahead of their match at Leyton Orient today.

It follows a pitch invasion at Molineux on Good Friday, which the club said nearly led to the match against Rotherham United being abandoned.

Wolves can secure the League One title with a win today.
