Wolves have kept Adama Traore beyond the end of the transfer window – but what happens next?
Traore now has less than two years remaining on his Molineux contract, so it’s a situation which needs sorting.
The Birmingham Mail report that Wolves are planning contract talks with Traore now the window is closed.
There is reason for optimism that he will sign, because he is apparently very much enjoying life under Bruno Lage.
Lage has switched his position to the left flank and introduced a more attacking style of play.
That has meant Traore has been one of the most eye-catching players in the league so far this season.
If he’d managed to bag a goal or assist or two, he could feasibly have been named on the Premier League Player of the Month shortlist which came out yesterday.
Obviously the flip side of that elevated performance level is he might want to move on to a side who play European football.
Many Wolves fans have been disillusioned with the club’s transfer business – or lack thereof – in the closing weeks of the window.
If Traore looks at that failure to sign a new central defender or midfielder as a lack of ambition, that could impact his decision.
But for now, he’s playing well in a team which is improving, and what a boost it would be if he signed a new deal.
