Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Kenny Jackett has been speaking about the acquisition of former Chelsea midfielder George Saville.
The 21-year-old moved to Molineux on a three-year deal for a reported fee of around £1million, and Jackett believes he has got an excellent player at a bargain price.
“I think Saville can do a bit of everything,” the manager told Express and Star.
“He’s a very good all-round midfielder that we’ve done well to get.
“He’s one of those players we could have waited a year or two and he’ll be worth a lot more and some of those players become very difficult to buy.”
Saville is predominantly a defensive midfielder, although he can also operate in more of a central role and as a defender when required.
He signed for Chelsea as an 11-year-old and went on to agree professional terms in 2010. But after loan spells at Millwall and Brentford the player who has featured 47 times for Chelsea’s under-21s has now made the permanent switch away from Stamford Bridge.
And if Jackett is right about his development, the Blues could ultimately regret selling him for so little.
