'If It's Football, It's Vital'

New signings must show value for money

It had become quite clear in the local media that Wolverhampton Wanderers Head Coach Kenny Jackett considered Coventry striker Callum Wilson as his top target this summer.

That said Wolves missed out on signing Wilson to Championship side Bournemouth who completed a deal last week.

The Express & Star had previously wrote: 'Wolves boss Kenny Jackett returned to his desk ready to continue attempts to sign No 1 strike target Callum Wilson - as the rival bidders were revealed.'

Whilst the Birmingham Mail reported: 'But they are not prepared to pay over the odds for Kenny Jackett`s top striker choice.'

The second quote appeared to be our downfall as Wilson completed a move to Bournemouth for 3million.

Both former Premier League side Norwich City and Bournemouth a side described with 'serious financial clout' matched Coventry's 3million valuation with the player eventually agreeing to move to Bournemouth.

But gaffer Kenny Jackett doesn't believe the player was worth the quoted sums and pulled our interest.

"If a player is there right now, or at any time, and we can get them at the right price, we`ll do it," said Jackett to the Express & Star.

When asked about Wilson Jackett added: "I`m not going to talk about other teams` players, and it`s best to talk our targets when we land them.

"But do we look to strengthen and have a scouting department that works all of the time? Yes we have.

"They have to know the market and have to make sure there`s value for money on every single player.'

Meanwhile, Bournemouth defender Steve Cook who was also a target for Wolves has signed a new three-year-contract.

Cook appeared to become a target for Wolves following the lack of movement on signing Sheffield United defender Harry Maguire.
