Wolves chase duo

Wolves chase duo

Wolves are on the hunt for a January bargain purchase.

But while you might expect a defender or two on the list, the first rumours link us too a striker from Dundee and a midfielder from Scunthorpe.

Our friends over at Vital Norwich were one of the first to report the first rumour, linking us and them with Dundee forward Leigh Griffiths.

Griffiths a 20-year-old former Livingston forward scored 21 goals in 39 games last season before making the move to Dundee for £115,000.

While Dundee's chief executive Harry Maclean has denied they have received a 'formal' approach their financial situation might force them to sell.

The other rumour comes from tribalfootball.

They have reported that a source close too Scunthorpe United midfield Josh Wright has said: 'The interest in Josh is growing. Wolves and QPR are watching him closely and we expect more clubs to make themselves known before the New Year.'

The 21-year-old former England Under-19 international could be seen as a replacement for Dave Jones.

Vital Wolves Comment: Interesting links, I personally would have thought a defender or two, preferably with the experience of a Premier League dogfight would have been a priority.

However Mick has always liked to try and find young cheap talent to develop, so I wouldn't completely write off either rumour at this stage.

If they are planning on signing either of these players I doubt we will see much of them this season- this caliber of player for me fits the bill for the future- doesn't sound like either would cost a great deal of money- I imagine they are either in contractual situations or perhaps just players we've been monitoring and want for the future, and if they are becoming available, or other clubs are moving into snap them up, we are putting ourselves in there to get them. 21 goals in 39 games in the SPL doesn't excite me- I could score 20 up there if given a run.

Perhaps we should sign you up.

I would happily dust off the old boots as long as I could have a can of beer and a roll up at half time. And an oxygen tank hat.

Ok, a defensive midfielder would be third on my shopping list after a centre half and a left back, strikers are some way distant on my list. If Mancienne and Jones go, then the DM become more urgent

I'm pretty sure Jones will be 'with us' til the end of the season, after having signed a healthy pre contract with someone else when he is allowed to in January. It's like doing the wife for six months knowing she is going to leave you for one of your friends in June.
