Bargain hunter McGhee.

Mark McGhee has been ordered: Lead Wolves to First Division promotion on a shoestring budget - or face the sack.

Club chairman Sir Jack Hayward has reaffirmed that the days of big spending are gone.

Over the past three years Wolves have signed nine players of pounds 1million or more, but now McGhee is being forced to look in the bargain basement. He signed Finnish striker Mixu Paatelainen from Bolton yesterday for pounds 250,000, and his only other two summer captures have been Steve Sedgley from Ipswich for pounds 500,000 and Dariusz Kubicki from Sunderland for nothing.

After completing the Paatelainen deal, McGhee said: "You have to cut your cloth according when there is not much money to spend, but I feel he represents good value for money."

Sir Jack's millions have failed to bring the success he yearns for, so now McGhee must do it the hard way, knowing that if his team are not among the First Division front runners from the outset he could be out of a job by Christmas.
