Wolves confirm they are tracking 5,000 players

Wolves are watching 5,000 players

As reported in the Express and Star this week, Wolves have a cast their net incredibly wide when it comes to scouting new talent.

Wolves sporting director Kevin Thelwell met with the Wolves Fans’ Parliament this week.

During the event, Thelwell gave some insight into the recruitment process at Molineux:

We are getting reports on approximately 5,000 players a month – it’s becoming a big process.

We are not just crossing our fingers and hoping we can get the very best out of him or make something out of someone.

It makes it very exciting to be searching through a high quantity of players.

We are still some way from making hard and fast decisions (about January). The windows are very tough but I’m not complaining.

It’s worth noting that Wolves have fielded the same starting line-up for all nine Premier League matches so far this season.

However, following last weekend’s 2-0 home defeat to Watford, many are expecting Nuno to shake up his starting XI this weekend against Brighton.

Brighton & Glenn Murray

Will Brighton be able to field striker Glenn Murray this weekend for their home match against Wolves?

Murray was taken off on a stretcher last weekend at St James’ Park as Brighton beat Newcastle 1-0.

The veteran striker suffered a head injury.

Brighton will be without Davy Propper for the Wolves game as he’s nursing an ankle problem.

The Seagulls also have question marks over Pascal Gross who has been struggling with a foot issue.
