Wolves transfer news: Bruno Jordao set for Grasshoppers loan

Wolves midfielder Bruno Jordao is reportedly set to leave on loan today to join Grasshoppers.

The star recently commented on his future, saying he would be sitting down with officials to decide the next step for him.

Jordao recently returned to action after spending 11 months on the sidelines after sustaining a serious knee injury.

It cut short his loan spell with Farmalicao, and it’s been a frustrating period for the former Braga star.

He has been with the U23s building his match fitness, but it seems officials have decided it’s best for Jordao to go out and play senior football.

And it looks as though Wolves are ready to work with Grasshoppers once again. Journalist Tim Spiers has reported that the 23-year-old is set for Switzerland.

Currently, Wolves have new additions Hayao Kawabe and Jung Sang-bin there, as well as 2021 summer signing Bendeguz Bolla.

Toti Gomes was also there for the first half of the season, but was recalled by Wolves earlier this month and surprisingly given a first-team debut against Southampton. He then started the next game against Brentford.

Clearly Bruno Lage seems happy to let Jordao leave on a temporary basis.

But one wonders if that could mean there is a plan to bring someone else in on loan.

Bruno Jordao needs to play, and Grasshoppers loan is the smart decision

It is important for Jordao to be playing. He needs to make the next step now after returning with the U23s.

He did feature briefly for the first-team against Sheffield United in the recent FA Cup victory.

But if he was to stick around, that’s likely all he would be getting.

Wolves are potentially looking at a push for European football now.

Lage will be looking to choose Neves and Moutinho wherever he can. And then Dendoncker is the first port of call when one of the maestros isn’t available.

Hopefully if he does go to Grasshoppers he can really build his sharpness and confidence, ahead of becoming more involved with Lage’s first-team in 2022/23.
