Wolves transfer news: Wanderers make approach for Jason Denayer

Wolves have reportedly made an approach to sign defender Jason Denayer.

According to Shropshire Star, the club have identified the 27-year-old as a potential addition and have even offered him a three-year deal.

Denayer is currently a free agent after running down his contract at Lyon. He made 139 appearances for the French club, after joining them in 2018.

Wolves are seeking to add another centre-back in the final couple of days of the transfer window.

It is looking as though Willy Boly will leave Molineux, after failing to show up against Newcastle United on Sunday.

The Ivory Coast international was named in the matchday squad by Bruno Lage. But he didn’t turn up, with Lage saying afterwards that he wants to leave.

Nottingham Forest have already seen on bid for him rejected.

He came through the academy at Manchester City but never played for the first-team. He later had a loan spell with Sunderland.

Fulham and Valencia have also been linked with Denayer.

Wolves have also reportedly shown interest in West Ham United defender Craig Dawson.

Jason Denayer would make for a good free signing for Wolves

Links to Denayer should be welcomed by Wolves fans.

He’s a player with plenty of experience, and he also has 35 caps for Belgium.

GFFN suggested back in May 2022 that ‘Denayer’s performances have oscillated from ruthless, rugged and intelligent to indifferent, slow and indecisive’ during his time in France.

They suggest that the latter version of Denayer returned in 2022, which is a bit of a concern.

But perhaps the centre-half is needing a change of scenery.

Wolves need to get someone in, and Denayer well may fancy linking up with Dendoncker at Molineux.
