Wolves reportedly looking for loan signings before the deadline

A report by the Athletic has claimed that Wolves could still bring in players before the transfer deadline.

Scott Sellars said earlier in the window that Wolves were not looking at big signings but there have been two new arrivals so far.

While the report says much of the business which will happen between now and the deadline at Molineux will involve loan outgoings, it says that Wolves are also looking at bringing players in on loan.

A central defender, a midfielder and a striker are all areas which are being targeted if the right deal comes up in the closing days of the window.

Of course, late loan deals are perhaps not what many fans wanted in terms of excitement this month especially given how thin Wolves’ squad is.

But it shows that the club are still looking to improve what they have in their ranks and they could spring a shock loan swoop like when Hwang Hee-Chan came in during the summer with little preamble.

Renato Sanches came out of nowhere as a loan target in the closing days of the summer window and perhaps a surprise name will present itself this time around too.
