Kenny Jackett drops hint about future Wolverhampton Wanderers transfers

Wolverhampton Wanderers are on the look-out for January additions.

Kenny Jackett has told Wolverhampton Wanderers’ official site that the club are targeting permanent additions this month.

So far Wolves have endured a frustrating time in the January transfer window, but Jackett is not giving up hope.

The former Millwall boss is determined to bring in new players over the coming weeks, and he is considering all available avenues to ensure he gets some deals over the line.

“We would prefer to make permanent signings and take and develop our own players.“But we would also consider loan players," Jackett said.

“Sometimes they can turn into a permanent move if they do well as you can follow it up if they do well.

“Permanent would be preferable but we certainly wouldn’t turn a loan player down if we felt they could help us.”

Wolves’ main task in the transfer window has been to find a replacement for Benik Afobe.

The 22-year-old front man left Molineux for Bournemouth earlier in the month, and so far the void that his departure has left has remained unfilled.

Although Wolves have snapped up Aaron Collins from Newport County, the youngster is expected to be an addition for future seasons, rather than this one.

In Afobe’s absence, Wolves have been utilising Michal Zyro up front, and the Polish forward has impressed so far - scoring three times in five appearances.
