Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Kenny Jackett has explained on the club’s official website that he’s eager for the squad to settle.
Jackett appears to be from the breed of managers who want to see a swift end to the transfer window this evening, which means no further disruptions to personnel until at least January.
It’s been an interesting summer for Wolves with players coming and going over recent weeks and his comments make perfect sense.
“We do need the dressing room to settle down, definitely,” he told wolves.co.uk.
“We need to get things straight and to get things sorted out because there is a lot of the season left.”
“I would say I will perhaps feel relieved then, and things will settle.”
The impact of the summer transfer window
The summer transfer window is a difficult one because it doesn’t end when the season starts for clubs across the UK.
That means managers have to go into the start of their competitive games not knowing whether their squad will still be complete by the transfer deadline.
Some will rightly feel that all business should be done before the games kick-off because then everyone is in the same boat and on a level playing field, without the chance to see where their quad is weak to tweak things in the transfer market.
If Wolves can ensure that they make it through today without losing any of their key players, they will be in great shape to work hard throughout the international break, before looking to improve their Championship position when the domestic action gets back underway.
