Wolves to look out for loan business

Sport | Published:

Wolves today revealed they may enter the loan window for signings when it opens next week.

Fans are angry after the January transfer window closed with no new senior faces, the only capture 18-year-old midfield prospect Lee Evans, who won't be considered for the first-team squad until at least the summer.

Boss Dean Saunders wants to continue assessing his players. A month has not been sufficent time to make a considered judgement on a 40-plus group.

He still ended up losing five – Ronald Zubar, Richard Stearman, Frank Nouble, Steven Mouyokolo and loanee Jermaine Pennant.

But the loan window for Football League clubs runs from February 8 to March 24, and Wolves' new assistant boss Brian Carey believes there might be scope for incoming business.

"We did look to bring in some fresh faces to liven things up during the transfer window," said Carey. "But the loan window opens in a week so maybe something will happen then."

Wolves remain without a win in four games since Saunders took over and Carey wants the team to concentrate on tightening up at the back. Their performance in Thursday's 2-1 defeat at Leicester was their best yet under Saunders.

"We played well enough at Leicester but we'll be looking to improve on that, especially at the back," said Carey. "We have to keep the door shut and keep some clean sheets."
