Wolves boss Kenny Jackett confirms no approach made for Aston Villa outcast Gabriel Agbonlahor

Gabriel Agbonlahor

Wolves have recently been linked with a move for the player.

This week has seen Aston Villa forward Gabriel Agbonlahor heavily linked with an exit from the club as he continues to fall down the pecking order at Villa Park.

The former England international striker has failed to impress Remi Garde since the Frenchman arrived at the club and the attacker is seemingly on his way out.

A number of teams have been linked with the player, including Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers.

It was reported by the Express and Star earlier in the week that Wolves were looking at the possibility of signing Agbonlahor on loan until the end of the season.

That report has since been downplayed by other media and now Wolves boss Kenny Jackett has had his say on the rumour.

The Wolves boss told BBC West Midlands Sport this afternoon:

"He's not somebody that we have discussed or tracked as yet."

That then seems to clear it up for now. Wolves have not yet made any approach to sign the Villa striker, contrary to other reports.

Agbonlahor however could still be on the move this month when you consider his situation at Villa Park. He has played just 10 games for Villa this season and only twice since October.
