Wolves very impressed with Mike Williamson but no deal close
Wolves manager Kenny Jackett has confirmed that he would like to sign Mike Williamson but says that there is no deal imminent.
With only 12 days of the transfer window remaining, Newcastle appear to be struggling to move on any of their growing number of unwanted players.
Mike Williamson will leave for nothing when his contract runs out in June unless he goes in these remaining days of the transfer window.
The same is the case for Sylvain Marveaux who will also exit the club this summer unless ‘snapped up’ this month, Shane Ferguson looked to be due to sign a permanent deal at Millwall but they say they may need to now look elsewhere as Newcastle haven’t made a decision on their offer for the winger/left-back.
Gael Bigirimana (his NUFC contract ends June 2017) was another who was expected to turn his loan deal into a permanent one this month but has instead had his loan extended, with no permanent deal agreed between Coventry and Newcastle.
Injured duo Steven Taylor and Gabriel Obertan will be out of contract this summer, with no news on either of them leaving this month or getting a contract extension at St James Park.
Wolves have got the best part of £10m banked after selling Benik Afobe to Bournemouth but are finding it difficult to bring reinforcements in as manager Kenny Jackett explained:
“There’s nothing imminent, we are looking and working hard towards bringing players in.
“We can’t find the right player for the right price, it’s as simple as that.
“Is there interest in Mike Williamson? Yes, I was very impressed with what he brought to us and how good he was when he was on loan. But no, a deal isn’t close.”
