Wolves have admitted that they are unlikely to sign Sheffield United defender Harry Maguire, who looks set to move to much bigger clubs. The 21-year-old defender is one of the highly rated youngsters in English football right now. He came through the ranks at Sheffield United and has been linked with a move to the Premier league. After getting recently promoted back to the Championship, Wolves will straightaway be looking to challenge for a return to the Premier League. However, they may have to do so without the presence of Harry Maguire.
Kenny Jackett has completed his first summer signing as he secured the services of Tommy Rowe who was out of contract at Peterborough United which means that Wolverhampton managed to add him into the squad on a free transfer as the newly promoted Championship League club made their move faster than Leeds United and Blackburn who were some of the other clubs interested in signing the 25 years old player.
Tommy Rowe expressed his delight about being transferred to his new club Wolverhampton Wanderers as he talked during a press conference and said:
Wolves will be returning straight back to the championship after just one season in the League One after they managed to seal promotion with record points tally. The club will be finishing the season with more than 100 points on the board. After relegation last year, which was their second consecutive, the future of the club was looking in a lot of turmoil. However, manager Kenny Jackett has done a great job in getting the club back up the in first instance.
The 24 years old midfielder James Henry was struggling trying to find a place into the main team of Millwall and this led up to him being loaned out to Wolverhampton but ultimately it concluded on a permanent deal.
James Henry has already scored 9 goals with his new club and he is setting his sights on reaching double figures in the goal charts before the season reaches its end.
The 22 years old English winger of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Michael Jacobs has revealed that his team and the players themselves will continue working hard in order to get a promotion spot for the Championship League but it has now become a 3 horse race with Leyton Orient, Brentford and Wolverhampton all within reach with themselves.
Wolves have won the last seven matches without exception and it has seen them go top of League One with only a few matches remaining in the season. They are now odds-on favourite to get promoted into the Championship once again.
Their current record of the most consecutive victories stands at eight, but manager Kenny Jackett believes that this current team can match the achievements of its predecessors. The club have been quite impressive in recent weeks, as they have not conceded a single goal in the last few weeks. Jackett reckons that they can keep up this form and break the record.
The manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Kenny Jackett, has made it clear that he will use his new signing Nouha Dicko as the main striker and not as a winger.
The Wolves have recently bought Dicko from Wigan Athletic after paying an unrevealed transfer fee.
Wolves, the League One team, have given a trial to Jack McBean, LA Galaxy's striker. The 18 year old footballer came to Molineux after ending the season with Los Angeles Galaxy at the Major League Soccer where he scored 7 goals during the season.
Wolves manager Kenny Jackett told that Jack is here training for a few days. They would see how he fits in and whether he is one to look at in the future. Major League Soccer is a good league. If they have a look at some of youngsters there that might help them.
Wolves are unlikely to have star striker Kevin Doyle for the match against Sheffield United during the weekend. The Republic of Ireland international missed the match against Shrewsbury recently, and it appears that he has not returned to full fitness yet in time for this match.
Despite the lack of Doyle, manager Kenny Jackett says that he is confident of being able to manage the striking options in the team. He has said that the club already has four strikers at the disposal, but he is targeting one more striker in order to strengthen the squad.
Wolves have enjoyed a very good pre-season for the first time in two years after the arrival of Kenny Jackett as the replacement for Dean Saunders. The club has suffered two consecutive relegations, which is threatening to destroy the club itself.
They will be having huge financial problems if they do not manage to sell their top players like Karl Henry and Jamie O'Hara. They were some of the first names on the transfer list after the arrival of Jackett. Many expected the club to suffer even more without the experience and quality of such players.
