Boss To Assess Cassidy

New Year decision on in-form striker

Boss Ståle Solbakken has confirmed he plans to re-assess the progress of Jake Cassidy when his loan spell with Tranmere finishes in January.


The 19-year-old Welsh striker has notched 10 goals in 15 games in a loan spell with League One pace-setters Rovers, adding to the five goals struck on loan at Prenton Park at the end of last season.


The boss is keen to have a look at him in January before deciding whether he should remain at Wolves and fight for a place or have a fresh loan spell either at Tranmere or elsewhere.


“At the moment we are in dialogue with Tranmere so he didn’t play in the FA Cup and get cup-tied,” says the boss.


“We have to think what is right for him, whether that’s to continue playing at a certain level and getting confidence from that and building on it.


“The alternative is to come in to competition for places where you may get every third or fourth game and your development is stopped a little bit.


“We have to make sure we do the right thing for all parties.


“I have seen some DVD’s of Cassidy and we have scouts regularly watching him.


“The advice I have had had now is that we should take him back and look at him one more time.


“He stays there until January though and I think that is right for him.”
