Wolves not pursuing interest in Agudelo

Kenny Jackett has confirmed Wolves will not be pursuing a deal for striker Juan Agudelo.

The Colombian-born 21-year-old had been training with Wolves as a free agent whilst efforts were continuing to see if he would be eligible for a work permit.

“Juan is not a player that are going to pursue,” Jackett confirmed.

“He has been here on trial and we thank him for coming here and training and hope he enjoyed his time with us.

“But both parties will now move on.

“We felt that match fitness was the key for Juan.

“To get him up to Championship standard he would need to play games and it is hard to go from nothing straight into the Championship.

“That can be tough, and while the odd player does it most people don’t – you need a run of games and need to build up.

“So it was nothing to do with his ability levels, just that he hasn’t played.

“Drawing some likenesses we also have some players out on loan playing regularly who could come back in a good rhythm and with match fitness under their belts.”
