Jackett comments on potential Wolves loan arrivals

Kenny Jackett has discussed the possibility of Wolves bringing in players on loan.

Wolves look well set to enjoy a late season push for the play-off places, and Kenny Jackett has told the Birmingham Mail that he will only sign players on loan if they can improve his squad.

After Friday’s 2-0 win over Derby County, Wolves sit in eighth place in the Championship, two points off the final play-off place.

Their squad has been aided by recent arrivals, including the January signing of Benik Afobe, but the majority of it consists of players who have been with the club since their League One campaign.

Jackett does possess a fairly small squad, and that could be considered the reason for a mid-season slump that saw the club fall out of the play-off places.

However, they have now regained much of their early season style and form, and the coach has admitted that it would now be unwise to sign players, unless they strengthen the team that he currently has.

“I wouldn’t necessarily say there’s a player coming in,” the former Watford man said. “But if we feel there’s someone there that can improve our team then we will take a player.”

With the squad progressing well, it is hard to see any areas that need strengthening in the Wolves team. There is no point bringing players in when not needed, and Jackett would do well to not upset the applecart, with Wolves flying high in the race for the Premier League.
