Wolves manager Terry Connor says captain Roger Johnson is not going to leave the club anytime soon.

Roger Johnson: Linked with Wolves exit

Johnson was disciplined by Wolves after turning up for training in an unacceptable condition nine days ago but remains the club's skipper.

The 28-year-old has since not featured for Wolves and there have been some murmurs that he had requested for a loan move to a non-Premier League club before the deadline later this month.

However, Connor has dismissed the idea that Johnson had asked for a transfer.

"He's not spoken to me about it and he hasn't spoken to Jez (Moxey, chief executive) about it, so he hasn't asked," he is quoted as saying in The Express & Star.

"I'm happy to put that one to bed."
