Loan deals are an option - Nuno

30th January 2019, 10:35 by James Mason

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has hinted he could make some loan signings before the January window closes.

Last season's Championship winners brought in a number of signings during the summer, with talented winger Adama Traore arriving from Middlesbrough in a club-record deal worth £18million.

Wolves have enjoyed a good start to life back in England's top flight and Tuesday's 3-0 victory at home to West Ham United lifted the club to seventh position, 10 points behind sixth-placed Manchester United.

With the window slamming shut on Thursday evening, it did not appear the Black Country outfit would be doing any business this month but Nuno's comments following the win over the Hammers suggests otherwise.

"It's beneficial (loan signings) for everybody – for the player, for the club, for the club that the player belongs," he told the club's official website.

"It's a good option. We had the experience with some players last season, we have the same situations again with some players this season and things are working ok."

It has been claimed Wolves are showing an interest in Chelsea striker Olivier Grioud and are keen to acquire his services on loan for the rest of the campaign.
