Michael Jacobs completed a permanent switch from Derby to Wolves in January, 2014, following a successful loan spell with the club.

The exciting winger joined for an undisclosed fee and signed a two-and-a-half year contract, with a further year’s option in the club’s favour.

Born in Rothwell, Jacobs started his career with Northampton Town where he made 100 appearances, scoring 15 goals.

Jacobs’ impressive form saw him signed by Derby in the summer of 2012, where he made more League Cup headlines on his debut, providing the assists for all five goals in a 5-5 draw with Scunthorpe before the Rams lost on penalties.

Jacobs made a promising impact during his first season at Wolves, scoring eight goals, one of which - away at Brentford - secured the Goal of the Season accolade.

Opportunities were more limited the following campaign, which saw Jacobs spent a month on loan with Blackpool from March until April.
