Wolves fans have had to put up with a lot over the past two seasons - back-to-back relegations, horrendous performances, terrible managers - and now one supporter has had enough.

One anonymous fan has taken it upon himself to get rid of the dead wood at Molineaux - starting with the sale of first-team players on eBay.

Former-Tottenham midfielder Jamie O'Hara was listed on the internet shopping site - with the seller offering free shipping just to get rid of him.

O'Hara was singled out after reports claimed he still viewed himself as a Premier League player, despite playing an important role in a team that dropped two divisions in the space of 24 months.

The bidding started at 99p - O'Hara was signed by Wolves from Spurs for £5m, just for a bit of context - but soon jumped up as high as £153,900 before it was removed by eBay.

The tongue-in-cheek seller even pledged to throw fellow Wolves reject Roger Johnson in as part of any deal, and to personally drive the duo to the lucky auction winner.

Having played against the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal as recently as the 2011-2012 season, Wolves face the sobering reality of life in League 1 - with fixtures to come against Crawley Town and Gillingham.

In an unrelated development, the club have actually transfer listed O'Hara and Johnson, as well as a number of other first-team players as they plan for life in the lower divisions.

The recently relegated side have made club captain Karl Henry and left-back Stephen Ward available for transfer, as well as O'Hara and Johnson.

All four players played in the Premier League for Wolves.
