Wolves legend Dave Wagstaffe dies

Wolverhampton Wanderers legend Dave Wagstaffe has passed away at the age of 70, following a short illness.

The left-winger, who played 404 games for Wolves, between 1964 and 1976, was part of the 1974 League Cup-winning team.

Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey announced the news, on Tuesday afternoon.

"Everyone at Wolves was desperately saddened to hear of Dave's passing this afternoon," read a statement.

"Dave's team-mates, and the fans who saw him play always speak so highly of his skill and ability, and he was of course an integral part of the team which reached the UEFA Cup Final in 1972 and won the League Cup against his former club Manchester City at Wembley two years later."

Born in Manchester, Wagstaffe joined Wolves from Manchester City in 1964, before going on to play for Los Angeles Wolves, Blackpool as well as enjoying two spells at Blackburn Rovers.
