According to the Express and Star, Wolverhampton Wanderers are considering a deal for Kostas Giannoulis.

The report claims that the 28-year-old left-back has been on trial with the Championship clubs over the past two weeks and now Wolves are considering whether to offer him a deal.

The Midlands club have been in the market for a left-back since selling Scott Golbourne to fellow Championship side Bristol City during the January transfer window.

The report includes names such as Nicolai Boilesen, Francois Moubandje and West Bromwich Albion’s Sebastien Pocognoli as former options, yet wolves have now turned to other targets.

Among those is Giannoulis, a former Cologne and Olympiakos defender who stands at 6ft 0inches.

The one-time capped Greek fullback has had an interesting career where he has moved about a lot as a result of a lack of first-team chances, yet this past season he made 19 appearances with Asteras Tripoli.

Kenny Jackett’s young side lack experience in key areas, therefore bringing in a player in the mould of Giannoulis makes sense as the club look to strengthen their options.

Wolves will look to make a challenge on the Championship playoffs next season, though they must add to their squad this summer as their fellow challengers will also make key additions during the transfer window.
