Kenny Jackett provides update on Wolverhampton Wanderers' pursuit of Manchester United striker James Wilson

Manchester United striker James Wilson's is still being monitored by Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Kenny Jackett has told the Express and Star that Wolverhampton Wanderers have continued to hold an interest in Manchester United striker James Wilson.

Wolves wanted to sign Wilson earlier in the season, but they were unable to do a deal for the front-man, with Louis Van Gaal wanting to keep the youngster at Old Trafford.

With the January transfer window coming up, Jackett says that he is still monitoring Wilson’s progress, but the club have not made any further offers to the Red Devils as yet.

“We’ve kept an eye on it but we haven’t made any fresh inquiries in terms of James,” he said.

Wilson is considered to be one of United’s top prospects, but their wealth of attacking options has kept him in reserve for much of the season so far.

The 19-year-old has only made two appearances for United’s senior side, and there could be a possibility that he is made available for loan in January.

That could spark Wolves into making an approach, with the Midlands outfit keen on adding another striker to their ranks.

Wolves have also been linked with Newcastle United’s Adam Armstrong in the Express and Star of late, as Jackett looks to add a greater cutting edge to his side.
