Wolves' Jack Price to join Yeovil on loan

Wolves today agreed to loan Jack Price to League One side Yeovil for a month.

The 21-year-old midfielder will spend up to seven games at Huish Park after failing to win a first-team place at Molineux this season, following his breakthrough campaign in 2013-14.

Head coach Kenny Jackett had said on Saturday that Price would have to fight for his place after slipping down the pecking order following the arrival of Tommy Rowe and George Saville and the form of Lee Evans alongside Kevin McDonald.

But he had a change of heart when the request came in earlier today as it guaranteed Price first-team football for a month.

“We had a request in this morning from Yeovil to take Jack,” said Jackett.

“They specifically asked for him and they have injuries at the moment, so he’ll go straight into their team, which is a good thing.

“He hasn’t had the games yet this season and with our midfield looking good again.

“For us there is the possibility of him being involved there in seven games which is good and for the first two of those weeks, we don’t play.”

Price is set for his debut tomorrow night at home to Portsmouth in the Johnstone Paints Trophy, with games against Bradford, civentry, Crewe, Peterborough, Crawley and MK Dons to follow.

“To release him for no more than a month initially, will be a good thing because it gets him up and running in terms of game-time.

“He’s had a solid pre-season and in his breakthrough season last year he did very well.

“Hopefully now he can build on that, and with this loan spell, he can be ready for if and when his opportunity comes this season because it’s a long season.

“Both clubs will take it for a month and then assess it at the end of that time.”

What a difference a (2) day makes!

So what of that "Jack Price will not go out on loan" report of two days ago?

Solentwolves

Mind you, thinking about it - it's only a month's loan so in a way everyone's a winner. Jack comes back to us match-fit.

Chillo Wolf

That was the E&S headline but KJ didn't say he wouldn't be going out on loan - he actually said its too soon to say, which was the case at the time

Typical E&S reporting Solent

Disappointing but fair play to Jack - he would rather be playing than sitting around at Molineux. I think he is good enough for the Championship but is going to find it hard to get back into the Wolves squad.

KJ is showing his ruthless side, Jack never let us down last season but KJ has to make these hard decisions.

Well, this will give the youngster much needed game time. The worst thing would have been for him to stagnate with very limited opportunities at the moment at Molineux. Yeovil perhaps aren't the best team in league one, but it may lead to another loan deal with a better club in a month's time. The important thing is he keeps playing.

Good luck to ex-Wolves youngster Jordan Cranston who has joined Notts County. Always glad to see youngsters released by the club get fixed up somewhere else.

Clueless

This is shocking. Seeing as Price was one of the best players wolves had last season.

Chillo Wolf

Why shocking?

Yes terrific player but due to competition for places he hasn't had a chance yet this season. Going out for a month will give him game time

His chance will come, its a long season

Can't get my head round how Price finished top dog in midfield last season and suddenly is bottom of the pecking order without having kicked a ball, whereas with Evans it's been exactly the opposite!

Clearly there are reasons, and a glance at the table will tell you those reasons were justified.

Yeovil are the perfect place for him to go on loan - great squad for League 1 and under performing. Wouldn't put it past him to help turn it round for them and possibly bag himself a POTY award in the process.

"Jack Price won't be loaned out by Wolves" screamed the headline on Saturday!!!!

Oh Dear...............another load of tripe to fill the sportspage on the E and S.

Will they ever get it right?

I will start this with the over-riding fact that In Kenny I trust so if this is best for Jack and wolves then so be it. I didn't go to any pre-season games and clearly don't get to see training so all I can go on is last season.

On the basis of last season I am disappointed. I thought Jack looked head & shoulders a better player than Evans or (when he was played alongside McDonald and not higher up) Edwards in Midfield. He is always available for the ball, likes a tackle, plays with his head up and looks for attacking passing options. Watching him gave me faith that our Academy was capable of turning out anything else other than MM style automatons like David Davis. Clearly at 21 a month long loan to a good footballing side is not the end of the World. Also seeing him playing in a side that is struggling rather than dominating will be of interest to Kevin Thelwell and his team. I'm just disappointed.

Along with one or two other stalwarts, eg Jacobs, from last year, Price is a casualty of our success. It's a hard world at times, and we just might stop and consider such matters when we throw our hats in the air when we do well.

I love success in all things, and look with great enjoyment at a new look side going upwards, but I also feel sad for those who broke a gut to get us promoted and now can't buy a kick. Best of luck to any and all of them.

SEATTLE WOLF

I think this loan will probably be beneficial to both club and player. Price will get to stay match fit. There should be little or no adverse consequence to his future at Wolves, or at least through the length of his relatively new contract which he recently signed.

I hope Price gets games and can be on call for Jackett, after this said loan move, should his services be called on.

Have a good period at the Y-Town, Jacko!

UTMW!

Good move for all parties, fair play to the lad for wanting to show KJ what hes missing, I personally feel Jack is better than Lee Evans, and will grow into a good premiership player one day. Show Kenny what you can do and hopfully come back and get a chance in the championship.
