Kenny Jackett hints at further Wolverhampton Wanderers transfer business, despite close of January window

Wolverhampton Wanderers failed with deadline day moves for Kike and Robert Acquafresca.

Kenny Jackett has suggested to the Express and Star that Wolverhampton Wanderers could be active in the loan window.

Wolves were looking to add two strikers in January, following the departure of Benik Afobe to Bournemouth, but they failed to get all their business done.

Although Jackett’s side did snap up Joe Mason from Cardiff City, a deadline day move for Middlesbrough forward Kike proved unsuccessful.

And Jackett said: "We keep looking, we did state we were hopeful of bringing two forwards in if we could.

“We’ll have to then look in the emergency loan window, perhaps even wait until the summer for the right player, if that’s the case and we don’t get anybody in.”

Wolves were also linked with Italian striker Robert Acquafresca yesterday (Express and Star), but the 28-year-old was apparently not keen on a move to the Championship.

It leaves Jackett’s options currently looking short in attacking areas, and he may be forced to continue to have to play Michal Zyro or Rajiv van la Parra in an unorthodox position.

Zyro and Van La Parra are both more comfortable playing in the wing positions, but the pair have partnered each other up top in Wolves’ recent fixtures.

Wolves’ next match comes against Bolton Wanderers at Molineux later this evening.
