Kenny Jackett planning for busy transfer window with Wolverhampton Wanderers

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

Wolverhampton Wanderers are keen to sign another striker, even if Cardiff City's Joe Mason joins.

Kenny Jackett has told the Express and Star that Wolverhampton Wanderers still want another striker, even if they complete a deal for Cardiff City’s Joe Mason.

The 24-year-old forward is expected to move to Wolves in the near future after Wolves had a £3 million bid accepted yesterday.

Jackett is hopeful of completing a deal for Mason, but the 54-year-old is keen to further strengthen his front line.

“Are we in advanced talks? Yes we are," Jackett said. "But we wouldn’t have necessarily announced anything until he’s signed because it still has some way to go.

“But yes there are discussions going on at the moment and we do hope to be able to close a deal.

“We’ve looked at him for a while. He had a good loan spell at Bolton and he’s a natural number 10, he plays best just off a striker I think.

“Getting the right partnership in that area is a key one for us.

“And since Benik Afobe and Nouha Dicko have gone out of it for different reasons, it’s something we’re looking to obviously try to improve.”

Wolves have been surprisingly quiet in the January transfer window so far, with Michal Zyro their only senior addition.

However, the Midlands club could be in for a busy few days, with a number of transfers close to going through.

As well as closing on Mason, Wolves are expected to complete the signing of Mike Williamson from Newcastle United today, according to the Express and Star, while the Daily Mail say that Jackett’s men have completed a deal to bring Barnet youngster Hakeem Odofin to Molineux.
