Kenny Jackett planning long-term stay for Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Jordan Graham

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

Bournemouth have been linked with Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Jordan Graham.

Kenny Jackett's comments in the Express and Star suggest that Wolverhampton Wanderers have no intention of cashing in on Jordan Graham in the January transfer window.

Graham has been linked with Bournemouth in the Daily Mail, with Premier League clubs starting to take notice of the 20-year-old’s talents.

However, after the winger netted his first senior goal in Wolves’ 2-0 win over Charlton Athletic yesteday, Jackett has suggested that he is hoping to keep hold of the youngster for the long term.

“Hopefully, it’s the first of many [goals] and it was a good assist for the second, a quality ball in," Jackett said. 

“We’ve been waiting for Jordan Graham to get that first goal, he’s capable of cutting inside and shooting.”

Graham has been nothing short of a revelation since he broke into Wolves’ senior squad back in November.

The former Aston Villa man had previously gained first team experience at Oxford United, while on a loan spell, but few could have predicted his rapid rise.

Graham has won the Man of the Match award in Wolves’ last six matches, with his reputation increasing by the game.

Graham has now made eight Championship appearances for Wolves, and has already racked up five assists in that time.
