Wolves made a splash in the transfer market this week, signing Andreas Weimann on loan from Derby. He’s got decent pedigree and will be another asset to the team going forward. With the strikers not scoring, having more competition up front can only be a positive. Nouha Dicko’s not back to his full strength yet and needs a goal, while Joe Mason and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson have got a good connection, so hopefully Weimann can come in and do the business.
I still think they need to bring an experienced defender in. We’ll see what happens in the next 10 days or so. Jed Wallace has become the latest player to leave, moving on loan to Millwall. It just hasn’t worked out for Jed and going out to get some games will do him good.
It’s going to take a while for Paul Lambert to sort out the squad that he wants – he won’t be able to do it in this window, that’s for sure. He’s still making judgements on his players and I’m sure we’ll see more leave before the end of the month and then it’ll continue in the summer. The big positive for me is that he’s the one calling the shots.
