Gaffer keen for Iorfa to press on with Wolves
Head Coach Kenny Jackett says Wolves have no interest in selling highly-rated defender Dominic Iorfa.
The England-Under-21 international has enjoyed another promising season in the Sky Bet Championship, and with 40 league appearances is Wolves most-used player.
As with any young player who shows promise, his form over the last two seasons has prompted speculation of interest from elsewhere, but Jackett is keen to hang onto the Club’s best players rather than see them move on.
“I personally wouldn’t want to see him go,” he says.
“I think we need players in to improve us, rather than letting players go.
“I’m sure everybody at Wolves feels the same way as I do.
“We haven’t had any bids and like everyone at Wolves we want to improve the team, and build the team around Dominic, rather than replacing him.
“Whenever you have players doing well, there’s always that type of speculation.
“I’ll be as determined as everybody at Wolves – we want to improve the team.
“Selling Dominic, we don’t think will help us.
“It’s difficult in football to predict exactly what’s happening and once you get into the realms of very, very big bids, it would be wrong to say it can’t happen, because we’ve seen it happen many times.”
“It wouldn’t be my choice and for everyone at Wolves it is about wanting to build a team around Dominic.
“It has been very interesting over two of the last three games for him to play in the centre back position.
“Having had two years on the ball at right back will have helped him in that position and he can bring the ball out.”
Iorfa’s progress saw him sign a new long-term contract at Wolves last November, securing his future until the summer of 2019.
