Report: Wolves planning talks with ex-Manchester United goalkeeper

Kenny Jackett has told the local press that Wolverhampton Wanderers are eager to hold future talks with ex-Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak.

Kenny Jackett has said in the Express and Star that Wolverhampton Wanderers intend to hold future talks with Tomasz Kuszczak.

The former Manchester United goalkeeper agreed a short-term deal at Molineux in November.

He will, however, see that agreement come to a close at the end of January, casting him back into the free agent pool.

The Polish shot-stopper is yet to make an appearance for Wolves, with Carl Ikeme keeping him out of the side.

Jackett is, however, eager to ensure that he has experienced cover on his books.

It is for that reason that he is hoping to sit down with Kuszczak at some stage and find out where he stands, with there a desire on the 32-year-old’s part to get some competitive minutes.

Jackett said in the Express and Star: “We’ve been pleased with Tomasz but there is a discussion to be had because I think he’s quite keen to be viewed as a number one as well.

“If there is a possibility of working it out, we do want to keep him. But his own options and where else he can go are considerations, because he hasn’t actually played a game for us yet.

“I’ve been pleased with him and I like his ability, experience and attitude.”

Kuszczak opted to leave Brighton & Hove Albion at the end of his contract last season.

He was not expected to be without a club for long, but saw the 2014/15 campaign start with no deal signed.

Wolves have offered him an opportunity to remain part of the Championship set-up, but he must now decide whether it would be better for his career to go in search of game time elsewhere.
