Greek international Kostas Giannoulis on trial at Wolves

Wolves have run the rule over a Greek international – as their search for a left-back continues.


Kostas Giannoulis recently spent two weeks on trial at Compton Park in a bid to win a Molineux deal.

The 28-year-old former Olympiakos left-back now plays for Asteras Tripoli.

Giannoulis, 6ft, has played for a host of Greek clubs during his career and won a solitary cap for his country in 2011 in a friendly against Romania,

Giannoulis has now returned to Asteras.

Wolves' quest for a new left-back began in January when Scott Golbourne was sold to Bristol City.

They courted Ajax captain and Danish international Nicolai Boilesen and Toulouse's Swiss left-back Francois Moubandje, but both players turned Wolves down.

Albion's Sebastien Pocognoli was another target, with boss Kenny Jackett going to watch the Baggies man at the Hawthorns.

It is believed Wolves are no longer pursuing Pocognoli as an option.

Player of the season Matt Doherty was deeply impressive at left back but with youngster Sylvain Deslandes deemed not ready for Championship football – and Jackett known to want more specialist full-backs – then signing a left-back is a priority this summer.
