Saunders, who has overseen back-to-back draws in his two games in charge, does not believe Wolves need major surgery but he is keen to add to his ranks, particularly in the final third.

Yet the Welshman is willing to hold off as long as possible before the January 31 deadline as he fully examines the players already at his disposal.

"The longer we can leave it the better because as time goes on I'm getting a clearer idea about what we need," he told Wolves' official website.

"What I don't want to do is panic buy and bring a player into the club who is not as good as the ones we have got. These players are good - they have just had the stuffing knocked out of them.

"If I can get the belief back in them I think you will see some of the players who all our fans know are good players getting some form back. If they play like they can play we won't have to sign any players.

"So I will try and leave it as late as possible."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
