Lee Evans does not want to return to Wolverhampton Wanderers just yet

Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Lee Evans has been on loan at Bradford City since August.

Lee Evans has told the Telegraph and Argus that he would be disappointed if Wolverhampton Wanderers did not allow him to extend his loan at Bradford City.

Evans has played for the Bantams since August, but his current deal expires at the start of next month.

The 21-year-old does not want to return to Molineux though, as he is enjoying playing regular first-team football. 

“I’ve been in talks with Wolves as well to see if it’s definitely going to happen," the central midfielder said. "It’s looking like it’s going in the right direction and I’m very happy here.

“I see Bradford as being my club. I don’t think I’m an outsider looking in. I’m settled in my private life in a nice house up here and that reflects on the pitch.

“It will be hard if I don’t stay here in January. It will be disappointing for me."

Evans has made 17 appearances for Bradford to date, and his performances have impressed.

The youngster has looked very composed in the centre of their midfield, while he has also shown great battling qualities.

Wolves are sure to have been impressed by what they have seen, and it remains to be seen whether Jackett feels that he can earn a place in his side’s team, if he does return.

Jordan Graham was out on loan earlier in the campaign, at Oxford United, but he has returned to Wolves and now plays a key part in their starting line-up.

If Evans does stay with Bradford he will be hoping to help Phil Parkinson’s side achieve promotion.

The League One outfit are challenging for the play-offs and currently sit in 10th place in the table heading into the festive fixtures.
