Signing Newcastle United's Jack Colback may just have become far more appealing for Wolverhampton Wanderers

Newcastle United's Jack Colback have been linked with a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers in recent weeks.

According to the Shields Gazette, Newcastle United could be forced to loan out Jack Colback, while paying some of his wages, and that would surely make a transfer more appealing for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Colback has been linked with a switch to Wolves in recent times, but so far no move has materialised.

Newcastle had been looking to sell Colback permanently, but they are now realising this is a huge challenge.

Colback is on a sizeable salary at Newcastle, and it appears that none of the midfielder’s potential suitors are willing to match his current wages.

Newcastle could now be willing to pay a portion of Colback’s wages to get him off their books, and if Wolves can strike a deal like that, it would surely be tempting for Nuno’s side.

As a short term option Colback could be a useful addition for promotion chasing Wolves.

The midfielder is a quality player at Championship level, and on a loan move, which is partially subsidised, he could offer a great deal to Wolves over the second half of the campaign.
