Wolves have announced that Millwall have agreed a three month loan deal for James Henry.
The 24-year-old was at Compton for a medical today as head coach Jackett looked to seal a loan move with a view to a permanent switch for a modest six-figure fee.
Henry, who is in the last year of his contract, has been made available for transfer at the New Den.
A predominantly wide right player, the former Reading man is described as a tricky winger capable of delivering telling setpieces who can also play in central midfield.
Henry is well known to Jackett, having been signed by him twice on loan in 2009 for Millwall before he snapped him up permanently in 2010.
He finished last season with five goals and was runner-up as Millwall’s Player of the Year.
This season, Jackett’s successor Steve Lomas has opted for a more gritty midfield and replaced Henry with Martyn Woolford, who is now playing on the left, while central midfielder Richard Chaplow is playing a narrower role on the right.
Jackett said today: “A deal is agreed between the clubs and he is having a medical and discussing personal terms.
“He is predominantly a right-sided winger.
“He has a lot of quality, is a very good winger and delivers a high number of crosses into the box in every game.
“His ball retention is good, but his predominant strength is as a winger, going past players and getting crosses in.
“I am very pleased to be able to bring him in on loan and he gives us good options on the right side.
“We have been short in the wide areas and James gives us good competition.
“And at 24 years old his best years are still ahead of him.”
