Wolverhampton Wanderers fans here in the Tavern are hoping their side can make the most of their lead at the top of the table, as a dip in form has seen the trailing pack close the gap.
Wolves have been sensational in the Championship so far this season, as they look on course for securing automatic promotion to the Premier League. Indeed, the summer transfer window business completed by the Midlands club has played a key part in their current position, as the power of super-agent Jorge Mendes continues to work wonders at Molineux.
The Wolf Pack have never looked like giving up in their pursuit of the Championship title, and certainly won’t let up in the final couple of months with promotion firmly in their sights. Indeed, a return to the top-flight has our local residents in dreamland, as many are loving the prospect of going up against the big guns once again.
However, Premier League football would inevitably see even more transfer window business being completed by the promotion hopefuls, with plenty of departures expected should this be the outcome. So, here’s a look at TWO players that will have no future at the club if they get promoted…
Danny Batth has been crucial in the club’s recent history after playing a huge part in their promotion to the Championship but continues to be overlooked by Nuno Espirito Santo after welcoming Ryan Bennett and Willy Boly in the summer.
Indeed, the 27-year-old did manage to score in Wolves’ Carabao Cup triumph over Southampton, but our local residents will remember the defender for all the wrong reasons after his red card against Bristol City back in December.
Therefore, having failed to make the most of the opportunities that have been presented to him thus far, a step up to the Premier League would see the defender out of his depth with a departure from the club being the likely outcome.
Jordan Graham was Wolves’ star man in their second season back in the Championship after becoming the king of assists. However, the winger spent the first half of this season out on loan at fellow Championship side Fulham, as the Englishman continues to stagnate behind the scenes at Molineux.
Indeed, the 23-year-old has been kept out of the side since returning to the Midlands in the January transfer window, as Wolves’ brilliant front three continue to run riot in the Championship.
Therefore, with the club unable to accommodate for the winger’s services so far this season, promotion to the Premier League would inevitably see Graham head for the exits.
