Wolves went through the entire January transfer window without ever looking close to signing a new central midfielder for the first team.

Renato Sanches was heavily linked by the end of the summer but did not get off the ground in the winter market.

One man who knows what it takes to make it in the Molineux midfield is David Edwards and in the Express and Star, he has had his say on the current engine room.

“Until the end of the season they’ll now be praying there’s no big injuries. I don’t think the squad is capable yet of making the top four or six, but they’re heading in the right direction and with a good summer you could see how far this team can really go.

“In midfield, I think they have enough to get by but it’s not ideal, they should have brought in another midfielder.

“But are you really going to want to sign for Wolves when you know it’s so settled with Neves and Moutinho? It would have to be a big name to break into that midfield, so you can understand why they found it difficult to sign a midfielder.

“Hopefully, they can get some minutes into Luke Cundle and see if he can make it at that level.”

One potential benefit of Wolves’ small squad is that academy graduates should get a chance to shine in the first team.

Cundle has had the odd opportunity here and there this term but he has not had an extended chance to show what he can do.

It would be exciting if he can get himself established between now and the end of the season because he is a talented and technical midfielder.
