Kenny Jackett admits that Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Sylvain Deslandes isn't up to Championship standard yet

Wolves Stadium

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Sylvain Deslandes has made five first-team appearances this season.

Kenny Jackett has told the Express and Star that Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Sylvain Deslandes is not good enough for the Championship yet.

Deslandes is tipped to have a bright future at Molineux, but it seems that he will have to wait before becoming a first team regular.

Jackett feels that the 19-year-old still has some developing left to do, before he is ready to be a permanent inclusion in Wolves’ team.

"He hasn't done badly at all. There's potential for the future. I don't think he's of a Championship standard yet – and I've told him that.

"But I think he can work towards it, he's a good enough player to do that.

"He's a very good character and has a terrific work ethic. That will stand him in good stead.

"But there has to be a reality to it as well, I don't think he's a Championship-standard left-back yet but he can aspire towards that and work towards that, definitely."

Deslandes has played in Wolves’ last three Championship matches, taking his total appearances this season to five.

The youngster could be handed one more chance in Wolves’ last fixture, against Sheffield Wednesday.

However, it seems that next season Wolves could be willing to listen to loan offers for the left-back.

"Perhaps playing games (on loan) will be the best bet,” Jackett added.

"I do feel he's a good left back for his age and has a good future for Wolves.”

Wolves are expected to be on the look out for a left-back in the summer transfer window.

Matt Doherty has covered well on the left hand side of the defence for much of the season, but he is more familiar with playing at right-back.
