Steve Bull has told the Shropshire Star that Wolves record signing Fabio Silva should join another club on loan in the January transfer window.
Silva is yet to make a Premier League start for Bruno Lage’s side this season.
Legendary Wolves striker Bull believes Silva should leave Molineux on loan in the winter window in order to break into the first team in the future.
“Fabio Silva is probably frustrated – no striker, or any player for that matter, wants to be on the bench every week. You lose your match fitness and sharpness,” wrote Bull in his column.
“It seems like a good idea to me to send him out on loan, get his match fitness up and prove to the manager that he wants Raul or Hwang’s shirt. Then he can come back and get in the side.
“The only trouble is Wolves don’t have a big squad and if he goes on loan, they will need to replace him. He just has to get his head down.
“He is one for the future and is probably getting fed up because he wants to play, but he has to be patient.”
Lage was recently asked about Silva and said he is in his plans and urged the striker not to ‘run away’ from Molineux.
As Bull said, if Wolves loaned out Silva – having already sold Rafa Mir and loaned out Patrick Cutrone and Austin Samuels – they would need to find another striker to replace him.
What quality of frontman could they get who would sit behind Raul Jimenez on the bench?
Willian Jose came in last January and did not prove to be a success. So perhaps Lage will keep Silva in reserve beyond January. That is certainly what his recent comments suggested.
