Jacobs makes Wolves switch permanent
As kind of expected Michael Jacobs has made his switch to Wolverhampton Wanderers from Derby permanent.
Wolves Head Coach Kenny Jackett made the initial move for the 22-year-old in November, with that original stay at Molinuex expiring on January 2. That loan deal had then been extended, however it was expected that it was likely that move could become permanent once talks between the two clubs started.
Jacobs had made just three appearances in the Championship prior to his Wolves loan this season, all as late substitutes for former club Derby. He had also made three appearances in the Capital One Cup, scoring against Oldham.
After enjoying his first loan stint with Wolves, making six appearances, four starts and scoring his first goal for the club against Crewe on Boxing Day.
Jackett wanted to extended his current loan deal and now he's snapped up the 22-year-old permanently for an undisclosed fee with Jacobs signing a two-and-a-half year deal.
"I feel I have got better with every game and have enjoyed having that consistency with playing.
"I`ve benefited from having four games in eight days over Christmas as well.' Jacobs told Wolves Official Website.
"I feel like I`ve rekindled my love for football again which maybe I`d lost a little over the last six to eight months.
"Being given an opportunity here has helped me and I feel I`m playing with a lot more confidence.
