Wolves: Luke Hatfield expects January centre-back signing

Wolves: Luke Hatfield expects January centre-back signing -Wolves Transfer Rumours

Wolves will make a centre-back signing in the January transfer window, according to reliable Express & Star journalist Luke Hatfield.

The Lowdown: Wolves short at centre-back

Bruno Lage’s side made it three Premier League wins in a row on Saturday, beating Aston Villa in stunning fashion as they came from 2-0 down on 80 minutes to win 3-2 in the dying seconds at Villa Park.

Despite the current positivity, Wolves are potentially short on central defensive options, particularly with their manager preferring to go with three at the back, so a new signing in that position could well be required in January.

The Latest: Hatfield predicts January signing

Speaking to Give Me Sport, Hatfield admitted that it would be a huge surprise if Lage didn’t bring in a new central defender in the next transfer window

He said: “I’m sure of it. And I will be dumbfounded if they don’t sign a centre-back, and a quality one at that in January, because they’re just so thin on the ground in that position.”

The Verdict: Wolves could still do with added defensive cover

While Wolves do still have some depth at the back – the likes of Conor Coady, Max Kilman and Willy Boly are all currently available – Yerson Mosquera’s long-term hamstring injury means that bringing in another option could be a shrewd investment.

It would allow Lage to rotate his squad as the matches come thick and fast between January and May, at a time when injuries can potentially become a more regular occurrence.

Admittedly, when Mosquera returns there could almost be too many choices for Lage, but he could assess that situation further down the line.
