Kenny Jackett praises Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder George Saville

George Saville scored twice in Wolverhampton Wanderers' win over Derby County.

Kenny Jackett has told Wolverhampton Wanderers’ official website that George Saville will only get stronger for the club.

Saville’s chances at Wolves have been limited, but the central midfielder has come back into contention in recent weeks.

The former Chelsea man has made seven appearances since the start of 2016, and he put in his best display for the Midlands side at the weekend.

Saville scored both of Wolves’ goals as they beat Derby County 2-1, and Jackett is enthused about the youngster’s future at Molineux.

“George is a young, developing player and we feel we took him at the right time," he said.

“It is tough to buy the players that Derby have done who are the finished article and we have a number that are developing and George is doing that in the right way.

“We had two players on loan at Millwall – Afobe and Saville – from big London clubs. They have emerged at different times but we can see Saville’s quality.

“He will get stronger and we hope he will develop into a good midfield player for us.”

Wolves have used the loan system to great effect to develop their own players this season, with plenty of their players coming back from temporary moves to have parts to play.

Jordan Graham is the best example, as he returned from a spell at Oxford United to become a key contributor, while Tommy Rowe and Bjorn Sigurdarson also have enjoyed resurgences.

Wolves also have Jed Wallace out on loan at Millwall currently, and they will be hoping that the former Portsmouth man can make a similar impact when he comes back to Molineux.

Wolves' win over Derby was hugely important as it ended a run of seven matches without defeat and lifted them up to 13th in the Championship table.

Jackett’s side’s next match comes against promotion chasing Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium on Friday evening.
