Wolves cub Ennis a loan target for Plymouth

Wolves striker Niall Ennis could become the latest youngster to be loaned out to gain experience with Plymouth Argyle chasing his signature. The 20-year-old, who is currently one of the few forwards on Wolves’ trip to China after the departures of Helder Costa and Ivan Cavaleiro, has attracted the interest of the League Two club, according to Football Insider. Ennis made his Wolves debut in the FA Cup fourth round replay win against Shrewsbury Town last season and was top scorer for the Under-23s who won Premier League 2 Division 2. Plymouth boss Ryan Lowe is looking to boost his…

Wolves star Neves keen to add to winning feeling

Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves wants to win the Premier League Asia Trophy to continue his winning summer. The 22-year-old is on a high after winning the Nations League with Portugal with Molineux team-mates Rui Patricio, Joao Moutinho and Diogo Jota. And, as Wolves prepare for their Premier League Asia Trophy semi-final against Newcastle on Wednesday, Neves wants to add to that feelgood factor. “We want to maintain that winning feeling, that’s what motivates you for everything – to win,” he said. “If we can win, even in pre-season, it will be perfect for us. “I think it’s beneficial to have…

Ex-Wolves defender Hause ‘flatters to deceive’ – Bent

Former Wolves defender Kortney Hause has come under fire from ex-Villa striker Darren Bent, who claims he ‘flatters to deceive’. The 23-year-old recently left Wolves in a £3m move to Villa after he spent the second half of last season on loan at Villa Park. Hause is one of four players allowed to leave Molineux by head coach Nuno Espirito Santo this summer along with Helder Costa, Ivan Cavaleiro and Ethan Ebanks-Landell, and did not play in the top flight under the Portuguese manager last season. Bent played against Hause twice in the Championship, for Derby and for Brighton on…

Cav aiming to do a Wolves for Fulham

Ivan Cavaleiro is hoping to use his Championship experience to win promotion with Fulham. The 25-year-old forward, who is on a season-long loan from Wolves, was a key part of Nuno Espirito Santo’s team that won the Championship in 2017-18, when he scored nine goals in 42 games. Now he is hoping to do the same with Scott Parker’s side as Fulham seek an immediate return to the Premier League following relegation last season. “My goal is just to help the team get to the Premier League, and score a lot of goals and add a lot of assists,” said…

Wolves ‘not competing for top six’ – Nuno

Nuno Espirito Santo insists Wolves are not competing for a place in the top six next season. Internally, the club have set a target to match last season’s seventh-place finish, or ideally, better it. Wolves surprised many people last season by achieving the highest finish by a promoted club since Ipswich in 2000-01, but head coach Nuno has already acknowledged their task will be harder this time around, with the added pressure of competing in the Europa League, as well as the potential dangers of ‘second season syndrome’. “We are not fighting for the top six,” Nuno told a press…

Nuno hoping Wolves make a ‘bunch’ of signings

Nuno Espirito Santo hopes Wolves ‘make a bunch of good signings’ in the transfer market. With 24 days before the transfer window shuts, so far the only incoming business Wolves have done is to make the loans of Raul Jimenez (£32m) and Leander Dendoncker (£12m) permanent. Nuno wants to add a centre back, central midfielder and a striker, and they have been linked with a host of names, but the only confirmed interest has been in Albion striker Salomon Rondon. Wolves have allowed Helder Costa (Leeds, loan), Ivan Cavaleiro (Fulham loan) and Kortney Hause (Villa, £3m) to leave and Nuno…
