Wolves are considering a move for Preston North End striker Jordan Hugill to lead the line this season.

Paul Lambert was keen to land the 24-year-old, but it is thought the forward is still open to a move to Molineux.

Nuno Espirito Santo has plenty of irons in the fire, but Hugill could still be an option should other moves fail to materialise.

Millwall’s deal to sign Jed Wallace has been delayed due to a technicality between the winger and Wolves.

The Lions agreed a fee for the 23-year-old a while ago but were waiting for the wideman to return from his summer holiday to add him to their list of close-season recruits.

West Brom

Ex-Wolves striker Benik Afobe could be the subject of interest from West Brom.


Tony Pulis was believed to have kept close tabs on the striker in January and could make another approach should the club miss out on Southampton's Jay Rodriguez.

Centre-back Ahmed Hegazy has been linked with a summer move to West Brom or Hull City.

The Baggies sent scouts to watch the the Al Ahly defender in action and is thought to have impressed.

The 26-year-old helped Egypt to the African Cup of Nations title earlier this year and was named in the official team of the tournament.


Aston Villa

Aston Villa are considering a bid for former Villa man Stewart Downing.

The 32-year-old has been told he is surplus to requirements on Teesside by new Middlesbrough boss Garry Monk following Boro’s relegation back into the Championship after a poor year in the Premier League.
