Scott Sellars hints at more new signings at Wolves after Nathan Collins deal

Wolves’ technical director Scott Sellars has hinted more new signings will be on the way, after the club announced Nathan Collins earlier this evening.

The club are finally off the mark for incomings this window, with Wanderers snapping up the Republic or Ireland international from Burnley.

Wanderers entered into advanced talks with the Clarets last night.

And official confirmation of the £20.5 million deal arrived earlier this evening, with Collins joining his new teammates on the plane to Alicante.

He will now get to know the rest of the squad, and feature in games against Deportivo Alaves, Levante, Besiktas, Sporting CP and SC Farense.

It’s an exciting signing from Wolves, and the reaction has generally been very positive on social media.

But fans are sure to clamour for more new faces.

There is still need for a new central midfielder and a new striker. There have been reports in recent days that Fabio Silva is set to join Anderlecht on loan.

Speaking amid the signing of Collins, Sellars hinted that the club will be doing more business.

He said (via Wolves official): “It’s taken time, but we’ve got there in the end. We know we’ve lost some players and need to fill those spaces, so it’s important that we look at that. We’re delighted to get the first one and hopefully there’ll be more coming through.”

Last summer, most of Wolves’ deals did come in July and August, so there is reason for optimism.

Wolves officials must follow Collins up with more new signings

It may have taken Wolves a little longer than hoped to get going this window. But Collins is a great first signing.

The language used by Sellars is encouraging. Clearly, more targets are being looked at and there is acknowledgment that players that have left need replacing.

The club needs a big summer. Hopefully, the recruitment team can deliver after a promising start with Collins.
