Wolves have rejected a bid from Hibernian for prized striker Leigh Griffiths.

Hibs chairman Rod Petrie travelled to Wolverhampton last week to meet Wanderers chief executive Jez Moxey in an attempt to secure the services of the Scotland international, who scored 28 goals while on loan at Easter Road last term.

But Wolves firmly rejected the confidential offer and have no intention to sell Griffiths as they look to secure an immediate return to the npower Championship next term.

Murray: Wolves job is a massive task

Dean Saunders' successor as manager at Molineux faces "a massive task" to lift the club in readiness for an instant return to the npower Championship, says former Wolves goalkeeper Matt Murray.

The Wolves players have to realise that in every single game they're going to be a massive scalp

In the Championship Wolves are a big scalp, but in League One other clubs will go there desperate to play them and when they go away to these teams, it's going to be a lion's den.

I think they've still got £16million of parachute payments and everything else, then I believe Wolves can get back.

But the appointment, the person who comes in, it's a massive task just to lift the whole place.

– Matt Murray speaking to Sky Sports News.

Wolves sacked Saunders following the club's relegation to League One and are now in the hunt for their fifth permanent manager in less than 15 months.

Owen Coyle, Peterborough's Darren Ferguson and Kenny Jackett, who resigned as Millwall boss, have been installed among the early favourites.
