The Express and Star believe that Jack Colback could make a move to Wolves from Newcastle on loan before the end of the transfer window, and he’d be the perfect addition.

Surplus to requirements under St James’ Park according to the Daily Mail, a move to Molineux would be ideal for both parties this season.

Nuno Espirito Santo sees the 27-year-old as an ideal replacement for Dave Edwards, who has joined Reading.

Meanwhile Colback would get the opportunity for more regular football by dropping back down into the Championship, having fallen out of favour in the north east with Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey and Mikel Merino all ahead of him in the pecking order.

And Colback’s attributes would be a fantastic compliment to those offered by first-choice partnership Ruben Neves and Romain Saiss in the middle of the park.

The former Sunderland midfielder has made 2.6 tackles per 90 minutes over the course of his career, according to WhoScored, which is more than the current Wolves duo are managing so far in this campaign.

Colback also has a career mark of two interceptions per 90 minutes, which is very similar to the numbers being registered by Neves and Saiss under Nuno.

With Wolves having the seventh-highest possession percentage in the Championship, the Magpies outcast will also be able to show off the passing skills that prompted Roy Hodgson to refer to him as the Ginger Pirlo during the manager’s time with England.

A deal would make Colback the fifth player to arrive at Wolves on loan this summer, after Leo Bonatini, Willy Boly, Diogo Jota and Ruben Vinagre.
