Wolves transfer news: Newcastle enquired over Kilman and Coady in January

Wolves defenders Max Kilman and Conor Coady were both the subject of interest from Newcastle United in January.

According to The Athletic, the Magpies made inquiries about the duo, as they sought to strengthen at the back after a terrible start to the 2021/22 season.

The publication discusses the potential for players to leave Molineux this summer.

And there is mention of the fact that Wolves are distinctly aware of Newcastle’s new wealth.

One wonders if that means the club are anticipating them to come back in for Kilman and Coady.

Wolves have been struggling defensively in recent weeks. But for the most-part this season, it has been the strongest aspect of the starting XI.

Kilman in particular has been a revelation at the back for Wanderers.

The 24-year-old has put in some colossal displays operating as a right-sided centre-back.

And Coady, whom Kilman branded ‘a top player’ back in August, has been ever-present once again as the middle centre-half.

It isn’t made clear if Newcastle actually presented any transfer offers for either player.

But Wanderers were able to keep hold of both in the end. It certainly would have been a major surprise if the board had sanctioned any sales.

It would be no surprise if Newcastle showed interest in Kilman and Coady again this summer.

But they will have their work cut out if they really want to sign one of them.

Kilman has been seriously impressive throughout 2021/22 and Wolves won’t want to lose him after his breakthrough season

And Coady is the club captain, and absolutely loves the club, where he has been since 2015.

It’s possible some very high offers could come in from the Magpies – but Wolves simply must resist.
