Sako Update

Jackett responds to speculation

Kenny Jackett this afternoon confirmed that Wolves were no nearer a potential deal with Nottingham Forest which would see winger Bakary Sako move to the City Ground.

Forest have been interested in trying to land Sako since the summer’s transfer window, and Wolves’ Head Coach was asked about the renewed speculation at his pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday’s trip to Colchester.

Jackett said:  “There has been renewed interest from Nottingham Forest but I can only re-iterate that nothing is going to happen unless it is right for us.

“At present there is no news and the clubs haven’t agreed anything.

“Although there is a lot of speculation we are not in a position where we have agreed terms.

“We have said all along that it is unrealistic to say players aren’t available because every player has their price.

“Look at Ronaldo leaving Manchester United or Gareth Bale this summer.

“From the chairman to the Chief Executive and to myself, it will only happen if the situation and the deal is right for the club.

“I am obviously going to be asked questions about it but for us the situation hasn’t changed and this is not something we are pushing.

“If there is a deal that is good for us, and a player wanted to go, we would consider it.

“But that deal is not there and nothing has been agreed.”

Jackett also confirmed that Sako missed training today through illness, and was being assessed by the doctor this afternoon.
