Transfer search continues


Kenny Jackett today said Wolves are continuing to scour the market in the search for a new signing – but is not expecting major change to the squad between now and the end of the transfer window.

Barring any injuries or players leaving the club, the Head Coach is only on the pursuit of minor tinkering to the ranks following the permanent additions of Michael Jacobs, James Henry and Nouha Dicko in the window so far.

But the search goes on, with Jackett acknowledging that is in the striker department that much of the speculation continues.

He isn’t however commenting on specific names of potential targets.

“We’ve made various bids at various times for different players,” Jackett confirmed.

“I’m not going to name any individuals, unless their clubs agree and agree a fee.

“We’re not at the situation with any player at present and so from my point of view it would be unprofessional to comment.

“We’ve made a number of bids, or enquiries, over the last few months for different players.

“Some we have brought in like James Henry, Nouha Dicko and Michael Jacobs and then others haven’t come off, but I don’t think you can talk about other people’s players.”

On the prospect of further additions Jackett added:  “I don’t think it will change significantly.

“There’s a lot of speculation, as there will be with most clubs.

“Most of our speculation - or all of it - does centre around our forward line. We’re trying to improve.

“Also you have to draw a circle around the group and say: ‘Come on, we need to beat Bristol City and Oldham’, and then deal with those situations when they come about.

“We’re trying to improve but it won’t be a considerable change.

“If we add one, we add one. If we don’t, we don’t.

“It’s that type of thing and we’ll constantly review and look at it and try to keep it going at all times if we can, so there’s a steady stream, or drip-feed, of new players and fresh talent coming into the club.

“In terms of this window I’d be very surprised if it is more (one addition). It would need an injury for it to be more.”
