Wolves pull the Plug on Davies Loan

New, comments

Although it was reported this morning that Craig Davies had signed on loan at Wolves we're now finding out that the Wolves manager Kenny Jackett has decided to pull the plug on the deal.

4 goals in 20 game isn't great.

After joining the Wanderers in January for £300,000 from Barnsley, Craig Davies has struggled to break into the team due to various injuries. Davies was going to return to Molineux for his second loan spell at the club and unite with manager Kenny Jackett who tried to sign him in the summer.

We were going to see Freedman's favoured one in one out policy as Davies' departure was met by Cardiff City striker Joe Mason's arrival. Wolves boss Kenny Jackett decided not to bring back Davies, who made 26 appearances for Wolverhampton while being on loan from current Seria A side Verona. In his time at Molineaux Davies failed to find the net and now he won't have the opportunity to change that stat.

After starting only 2 games this season (Capital One Cup win at Shrewsbury, defeat against Nottingham Forest in the Championship) Davies will need to re-gain fitness and, more importantly, form, if he wants to break into the first team. With Jermaine Beckford scoring goals for fun and the arrival of Joe Mason, Davies may find himself playing the waiting game for his chance.

Speaking earlier today this is what former Millwall manager and now Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Kenny Jackett had to say about his side's transfers to the Express and Star:

"We now want to make sure we keep the players fit and available and hungry to play for the club because we’re in a good position.

"We’ve got four good strikers with Kevin Doyle, Leigh Griffiths, Bjorn Sigurdarson and Jake Cassidy."

"So we have enough firepower and now it’s just getting them scoring."

Davies looks set to stay at the Reebok Stadium unless another club enquires for him later today. The loan window closes at 5.00pm so unless there's another plot twist it looks like he'll be here for the time being.
