Speaking on the Molineux View Podcast, Tim Spiers has delivered an update on Wolves’ January transfer plans.
The journalist has bad news for Wolves supporters as he claims the Midlands outfit aren’t looking to sign any players after struggling to negotiate with players during the opening week of the window.
“They’ve had a look at it for a month really in terms of looking who’s out there and whose available. Once the window’s opened, they’ve spent a week trying to recruit a couple of targets, and they’ve immediately hit a few cul de sacs and a few dead ends,” Spiers said.
The journalist then went on to explain the decisions to recall the likes of Patrick Cutrone and Morgan Gibbs-White, before further clarifying Wolves’ stance.
“Yeah, going forward and not signing anyone. From what I understand, that is the plan right now is to not sign anyone, they’re not looking to bring anyone in.
“They’ve seen that there’s not much value in the market, and in their defence, this is probably the worst January you can imagine. January’s are always hard, but when you add in the new rules around Brexit and the covid situation, it is a disgusting horrible market to buy in or loan in this month.”
This is worrying to hear, but it has to be said that it may be the right thing to do.
Wolves have been linked to Andy Delort in recent days, but Spiers reckons the Midlands outfit won’t be active.
Coronavirus and Brexit have thrown so much uncertainty into the window, and with Wolves in a position where they don’t need to worry about relegation, they can afford to take it easy this month.
Yes, it will damage their hopes of qualifying for Europe, but sometimes you just have to admit when you’re unlucky, and Wolves’ spate of injuries as of late are nothing but rotten luck.
It’s a shame to hear that Wolves won’t be active in January, but it does make sense.
