Wolves manager Bruno Lage says he speaks to the club’s executive chairman Jeff Shi every day.

He told the Express and Star that he discusses Wolves’ January transfer business and plans with him on a daily basis.

Wolves came out of the summer still in need of a new central defender and a midfielder.

The Africa Cup of nations in January will weaken Wolves’ defensive options, with Willy Boly and Romain Saiss set to go to that tournament.

And when asked if he is in contact with Shi over his January plans, Lage said: “Every day.

“When the transfer window closed we talked about it then and he knows what I want, but in the same way I need to understand just not the sport, but also the financial things.

“But he knows what I want and it was good for me when he did that interview and he said ‘I’m happy because Bruno has a big ambition’.


“I’m here to try to do good things and continue the work they started four years ago.”

It is a big window coming up for Wolves and it remains to be seen whether the club go big.

They could just try and muddle through AFCON and maybe get in a loan or two.

They could also recall Dion Sanderson for cover in January and then sending him back on loan again before the end of the window.

That would not exactly get the fans excited, and time will tell what Lage and Shi are discussing as the weeks tick down towards the winter window.
