It has been brilliant to see Wolves getting players in ahead of the new Premier League season starting at Sheffield United.

They have been busy in the market, to be fair, bringing in Fabio Silva for a club-record fee and also snapping up Fernando Marcal and Vitinha.

I would perhaps like to see us bring in a bit more experience in the form of a right-wing-back soon, but these are talented players who should add quality to the side.

It may take them a bit of time to blend in, but once they do, I am sure they will all be valuable options to Nuno.

We have signed a striker, midfielder and defender, and it would be nice to see a tried and tested replacement for Matt Doherty as well.

I am sure they are looking night and day to get somebody in, but it is about finding the right player.

For now, though, it is all about being focused on the Blades on Monday as we know it will be another difficult game against them.

I would imagine that Nuno, as he tends to do, will go with his tried and trusted players for this one – and then look to bed in the new lads against Stoke in the Carabao Cup at Molineux next Thursday.

It is always tough at Bramall Lane and preparations have not exactly been ideal, with a big group of players going away on international duty.

But, thankfully, they have all come back unscathed and a special mention must go to Conor Coady, who was excellent on his England debut.

He really did himself and the club proud against Denmark with his composed display. Now, Nuno and the players will all be raring to go.

It has not been much of a break, but they will have kept themselves in tip-top shape.

We have not won at Sheffield United for a few years, so it would be lovely to go there and kick off the 2020/21 campaign in style.
