Kenny Jackett: Will not be selling key men or over-spending this summer

The likes of Danny Batth and Bakary Sako continue to generate transfer speculation, with the pair of interest to sides in the Premier League and Sky Bet Championship.

Wolves, though, will be doing all they can to keep prized assets at Molineux, with the club under no pressure to generate funds.

Jackett said in the Express and Star when pressed on whether sales will be sanctioned: “That wouldn’t be something we’d be entertaining.

“We’re looking at building a club and improving and signing a player when it’s right.

“Getting picked off by bigger clubs isn’t something we’ll entertain.”

While looking to add rather than offload, Jackett has made it clear that Wolves will not be taking any financial risks when it comes to recruitment.

He said: “Wolves as a club has the potential to be a front-runner in the Championship. We don’t necessarily need to spend £11million to do it.

“Leicester had repeated investment but the season they went up they didn’t spend that much. They built the squad up and probably then needed a year to show some faith in the players.

“There are different ways to do it and I think we should do it our way.”

It has been suggested that Swindon’s teenage midfielder Thompson is among those Jackett is looking to bring in, but he has been quick to rubbish the rumours.

He added: “We haven’t made enquiries or bid for him.

“Like all the players in League One, we’re aware of him and he had good games against us, especially the first one where he was excellent.

“But, no, we’re not close to a deal or have made an enquiry at all.

“If you ask me, ‘Do I like the player?’ Yes I do, I know a lot about him and he’s a young player that we generally talk about as having a bright future.

“Have we enquired or made a bid? No.”

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
