Wolves eye up late move for influential Premier League midfielder
Wolves are in talks with Jack Colback over a potential loan move, according to The Daily Mail.
The Newcastle midfielder is keen to leave St James’ Park in the last 24 hours of the window, and Wolves are eager to add him to their ranks as they seek to push for promotion.
The 27-year-old had attracted interest from Hull City earlier in the window, but it now looks that Wolves have won the race to land the former Sunderland man.
Colback was part of Newcastle’s promotion winning side last season, as the Toon Army romped to promotion.
Wolves have invested heavily in their squad this summer, adding one of Europe’s best young talents in the form of Ruben Neves among others.
Colback certainly wouldn’t be guaranteed a starting spot in the Wolves midfield, but with Dave Edwards departing for Reading in the week, a replacement is certainly needed.
The former Sunderland playmaker is competent on the ball, but he also offers that engine that Wolves lost by selling Edwards; certainly an astute singing by Wolves.
