Renat Dadashov apparently close to Wolves loan exit

Renat Dadashov is close to a loan move to away from Wolves.

The Express and Star’s Wolves correspondent Liam Keen tweeted that the striker is set to join C.D. Tondela.

The striker’s new club play their football in the Portuguese Primeira Liga and finished 12th last season.

This will be his third loan spell away from Wolves, having spent time with Pacos de Ferreira and Grasshoppers.

Best to get out and play

Dadashov has had opportunities coming off the bench in pre-season as Bruno Lage takes a look at his options.

It has clearly been decided that he won’t get enough opportunities to play at Molineux when the serious stuff starts.

If that’s the case, he’s best served getting out and playing regularly elsewhere.

That was clearly the plan last season when he headed to Grasshoppers but a knee ligament injury cut short his time in Switzerland before he even had a chance to make his league debut.

The Portuguese top flight is a decent standard and he’ll learn a lot from playing games that matter after his period on the sidelines.

Last season, Rafa Mir showed the potential benefits of a striker going out on loan from Wolves.

He smashed in the goals for Huesca and it made him a man in demand, even catching the eye of Atletico Madrid.

That’s who Dadashov will be looking to emulate, rather than Patrick Cutrone, who had two loan spells last season and didn’t make much of a splash during either of them.

He will need to impress his new boss, former Liverpool assistant Pako Ayestarán, to earn a regular spot in the side and will hope to return to Wolves with plenty of games and goals under his belt.
