Wolves reportedly among clubs keen on signing Lawrence

Wolves are among the clubs keen on Derby captain Tom Lawrence, according to TeamTalk.

They report that the likes of Fulham and Newcastle are looking at the Welsh international before the end of the transfer window.

Derby’s financial situation is well-known, and they are staring relegation to League 1 in the face.

Lawrence is out of contract at the end of the season and that means that a deal does not need to cost the earth.

Former Manchester United man Lawrence has 23 caps for his country and seven goals in all competitions for Derby this term.

He has shown his leadership during a really tricky time for Derby and is one of the reasons they have managed to lift themselves off the bottom of the table in the second tier.

It remains to be seen if he would leave the club in the lurch or if he would even have any choice given their financial situation.

Newcastle could theoretically blow Wolves out of the water financially, but Bruno Lage can offer an assault on European football instead of the threat of relegation.

Brighton and Burnley are also apparently keen so he will not be an easy man to sign even if the price is right at any point.

Lawrence can play out wide or as a number ten, which is not a position Wolves especially need right now but losing Adama Traore may change the situation.
