Ahead of Wolverhampton’s Black Country Derby clash with West Bromwich Albion, Wolves manager Nuno Espírito Santo discussed their January transfer strategy.
While it doesn’t appear that any big signings will be coming in this month, it’s now even more clear why Wolves made the decision to bring back Morgan Gibbs-White and Patrick Cutrone from Swansea and Fiorentina, respectively.
“This is a transfer window that is always hard but it’s become harder with the new situations. The situation of Brexit and not allowing European players, all these things.
“Sometimes the targets that you want are not available so that’s why we made the decision to recall Morgan and Patrick to give us some time because I believe the solutions are here with us and not in the transfer window.
“Our decision was clear. We still have a lot of players out, we know they are coming back. They are returning to our squad, to our options. We decided to recall Patrick and Morgan because they were players from the club.
“When you have a chance to try and improve your own player it’s better for the club.”
Nuno also revealed that Willy Boly will start against West Brom after missing the last month with a hamstring injury.
