Watching Brief On Wayne


12:07 19th December 2013

Jackett focused on festive fixtures

Kenny Jackett says Wolves are keeping a watching brief as to Wayne Hennessey’s potential movements in January.

Hennessey enjoyed a successful loan spell with Yeovil during the first few months of the season, returning to top form after almost 18 months on the sidelines with injury, also regaining his place back as the Welsh number one.

But goalkeeping is a department in which Wolves are well served at present, the form of Carl Ikeme having played a major part in the team boasting the best defensive record in Sky Bet League One.

With Ikeme maintaining his high standards, Hennessey will be keen to enjoy some first team football, but while it is in the back of his mind Jackett is focused purely on the whole squad doing all that they can over the Christmas fixtures until the transfer window re-opens.

“Wayne is in the squad at present,” said the Head Coach.

“We don’t know whether things will open up in January for him in terms of whether we’ll get bids – we’ll see.

“At present it’s not something I’m particularly looking at or concerned with because Wayne is part of a working group that needs to go up to Rotherham on Saturday and win and play on Boxing Day and win etc etc.

“That’s the main thing.

“The slightly longer term projection of going through into the January window is something we’ll see as to whether there are options or bids.

 “We’ll have to review the situation and see what the options are when the window opens.

“At present he’s part of a working group that need to get some results.”

Wolves other senior goalkeeper Aaron McCarey is currently out on loan with York City while Under-21s gloveman Jonathan Flatt has also featured on the bench for Wolves on three occasions this season.
