.....Sky sources say Wolves keen to sign Swansea midfielder Sam Clucas ahead of tomorrow's deadline. Keep 'em coming Wolves.

Very average player. The fee better be cheap but given that Swansea paid a small fortune for him I doubt it.

The fact that his move to Burnley collapsed after the clubs had agreed a fee tells me he is Billy Big Boots and thinks he should be paid far more than he is worth.

He was good when at Hull but has lost his way since then. A bit underwhelmed by this.

Strange one, am surprised Kevin Thelwell got this past Nuno.

Surely this will only be a back-up plan for if Dendoncker/Zinchenko fall through??

Always wise to have a back-up plan!

The fact he is a left back/centre mid it's clear he is the back up for zinchenko. Or possibly being used to say to the lad "look make your mind up cus well get this lad instead ".

Tall left footed and English with a good engine with versatility in his locker so you can see how he could be useful.

Sean Dyche thought he was good enough for Burnley to try and sign.

Burnley should not be Wolves' benchmark.

Given that he was happy to turn down Burnley's offer, him turning up at a club is far from a guarantee of him signing.

One season's finishing position. Clucas was being purchased for the coming season, not last season. Burnley have Ashley Westwood in their midfield, we have Neves.

Where Wolves want to be is catching up as fast as possible with the likes of Saturday's opposition.

Playing a game at the weekend has nothing to do with Fosun's vision for the club.

Burnley could be bottom six this season as could several safe sides from last season after the windoiws that Wolves and Fulham have put together.

Looking over your shoulder lads.

Fair comment, KK, I am very impressed with Fulham's signings, they will be fine this season, maybe a shock top ten team.

Nuno on WM. All that matters is tomorrow's match. The table is irrelevant. It's one match at a time. We are are ready, confident. Come on you Wolves.
