3 players Wolves should loan out in January

As everybody knows, loan moves can be very useful for clubs.

They allow players that may not be getting many minutes the chance to go out and get exactly that.

The right environment can really help players to build fitness, raise confidence and perhaps even increase their value ahead of a potential transfer.

Wolves don’t have a particularly big squad and so there may not be too many outgoings in January.

Bruno Lage would ideally like to keep his squad together and add to it rather than take away.

But there are a few Molineux stars who may actually benefit from a loan spell…

Fabio Silva

The striker has endured a really tough time at Molineux since his big-money move from FC Porto in 2020.

The injury to Raul Jimenez meant he had to play much more than originally planned.

Despite showing some glimpses of his big potential, it has been clear to see that he is very raw.

Sometimes it has looked as though he is trying too hard to make things happen. That £35 million transfer fee really wouldn’t help any player of his age and experience.

It has been reported Wolves officials have discussed the idea of a loan move for Silva, but it remains to be seen if Bruno Lage puts up a fight to keep him.

Ki-Jana Hoever

Hoever joined the club at the same time as Silva and has endured similar struggles.

He doesn’t have the huge transfer fee hanging over him and so the spotlight isn’t quite as harsh.

The former Liverpool star has actually had some decent performances in a Wolves shirt.

But the £13.5 million star is firmly behind Nelson Semedo in the pecking order, with Lage very taken by the Portugal international.

He could well benefit from a loan move, with Hoever having not actually played many senior games so far in his fledgling career.

With Jonny Castro Otto returning from injury in the new year (he can play on the right), the club may consider a temporary exit for the 19-year-old.

Luke Cundle

Cundle is currently one of the most promising youngsters at Wolves.

He regularly shines for James Collins’ U23s, and the club have high hopes for the midfielder.

Cundle has actually made Lage’s matchday squad on several occasions this season, but is yet to make his Premier League debut.

With Bruno Jordao set to return soon and there being potential for Wolves to sign another central midfielder, it would make sense for Cundle to go out and get some experience.

Wolves have had loan success with Dion Sanderson, Matija Sarkic and Morgan Gibbs-White, and Cundle could be the next to benefit.
