Wolves have confirmed their Premier League squad for the 2021/22 season.
There are only three homegrown players registered; Conor Coady, Max Kilman and John Ruddy.
That means Wolves need to leave spaces in their squad as that’s not at the required quota, and only 19 senior players are registered.
The likes of Rayan Ait-Nouri, Fabio Silva and Ki-Jana Hoever don’t need to be registered because they aren’t old enough.
The full list is: Conor Coady, John Ruddy, Max Kilman, Romain Saiss, Willy Boly, Joao Moutinho, Adama Traore, Leander Dendoncker, Jonny Otto, Raul Jimenez, Ruben Neves, Daniel Podence, Marcal, Nelson Semedo, Bruno Jordao, Meritan Shabani, Francisco Trincao and Jose Sa.
Some Wolves fans have reacted to the news, in light of the club’s failure to make a significant signing on transfer deadline day.
A new central defender and a new midfielder were needed but the most significant piece of business on the day saw Morgan Gibbs-White leave on loan to join Sheffield United.
Here’s how the announcement went down ahead of the trip to Vicarage Road to face Watford tomorrow:
Home grown may become an issue in the near future, do you think?— Beeo Wolf (@Beeowolf79) September 9, 2021
Jordao and Shabani 🤣🤣🤣 the barrel is being scraped!!— TW🐺🟧⬛️ (@MarioEnzo69) September 9, 2021
Shabani and jordao👀— Bruno (@Akingrandawanda) September 9, 2021
That’s 19 players and that’s even been padded out with the inclusion of Jordao and Shabani who aren’t even fit to loan out which is where they should have been this year.— HungryLikeTheWolf (@HungryLikeThe14) September 9, 2021
Where’s Neto?— Tapo (@T8POS) September 10, 2021
It is supposed to be a minimum of 8 according to the rules , so 3 already with 6 gaps equals 9 at the minute— Mark Harvey (@Mark4947) September 9, 2021
Short team… again 🤦🏻♂️— Diego Carrillo (@DiegoCS_27) September 9, 2021
No worries mate😂 didn’t expect shabani especially to be in there— Bruno (@Akingrandawanda) September 9, 2021
