Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey will demand the Premier League provide clarification on team selection regulations at their summer meeting.

Wolves still feel aggrieved at being handed a suspended £25,000 fine by the league after making 10 changes for the clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford in December. Moxey points out that other teams have also made wholesale alterations to their line-ups without action being taken against them.

GMF TV: McCarthy delighted at survival


"Some sections of the media were having a go at Wolves for the side we fielded against Manchester United," he said. "I don't recall them having a go at Manchester United for making many changes on the final day of last season which could have affected relegation."

Moxey added: "Since then we have seen other managers make a lot of changes. Are we going to have the same furore over Roy Hodgson's selections for Fulham at the weekend?

"We will be asking for clarification on the ruling. The one question is 'how many changes are too many?' but we won't be asking for an apology for the action taken against us."

Moxey wants manager Mick McCarthy to remain at Wolves for "a very long time" after saluting his efforts in keeping the club in the Premier League.

McCarthy is understood to be on a one-year rolling contract and has performed wonders since taking charge at Molineux four years ago when Wolves, according to Moxey, were a "club in crisis".

"Mick has been central to everything we have done from a football point of view. He took over a club that was in crisis," said Moxey

"Part of our plan when we appointed Mick four years ago was to take the club and rebuild it, take it to the Premier League and stay in the Premier League.

"We set out a plan of where we wanted to go and Mick has delivered at every turn and we couldn't be more happy with what he has done."
