Wolves boss Kenny Jackett looks to replace Bakary Sako

Wolves head coach Kenny Jackett today insisted he is already working on replacing Bakary Sako – as Kevin Doyle was ruled out of the opening of the Scotland tour.

moreSako's move to Fulham is currently in deadlock with Wolves wanting £4m for their Player of the Year and the Cottagers understood to be willing to pay no more than £2.5m.

If Sako goes, Wolves will be short of left-sided attacking options following the exits of Stephen Hunt and Adam Hammill.

Wolves are believed to be keen on Newcastle's left-sided player Shane Ferguson, 21, on loan or on a permanent deal

"There isn't another naturally left-sided player here –he's probably the only senior player in that position, with the exception of Stephen Ward, who isn't in my plans," said Jackett.

Doyle, meanwhile, won't be travelling to Stirling University with the 23-man squad on Monday as he hasn't recovered from a groin injury.
