A round-up of the latest Wolverhampton Wanderers headlines from BirminghamLive on Saturday, September 11, 2021.

Wolves defender Hoever makes Liverpool claim

Ki-Jana Hoever has opened about his decision to leave Liverpool for Wolves, insisting his progress at Anfield was “too slow”.

The Dutchman, now 19, joined Wolves in a deal that could rise to £13.5m a year ago this month.

Wolves paid an initial sum of £9million for Hoever with a further £4.5m in add-ons while Liverpool retain a 15 per cent sell-on clause.

The former Ajax youngster made his senior debut for Liverpool in 2019 when he was just 16, becoming the third youngest player for the club.

However, he didn’t kick on as quickly as he wanted after that, which fueled his desire to leave Anfield.

Wolves backed to ‘surely’ break Premier League duck

Wolves are being backed to break their Premier League duck when they return to action this weekend.

Bruno Lage’s men take on Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday (3pm kick-off) following the first international break of the season.

Wolves have lost their opening three league matches under new boss Lage – all by 1-0 scorelines – against Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

They did beat Nottingham Forest 4-0 in the Carabao Cup and, despite not managing to score a goal yet in the league, there have been promising signs.

Newly-promoted Watford kicked off their campaign with a 3-2 win over Aston Villa but have followed that with defeats to Brighton and Spurs.

McCarthy baffled by Wolves’ approach to Moore bid

Wolverhampton Wanderers tried to land Cardiff City striker Kieffer Moore on transfer deadline day.

The Wales international was the subject of interest from the Premier League outfit but a bid was only put forward on the dying hours of the window.

Moore, 29, scored 20 goals for the Bluebirds last term and it is understood that Cardiff’s valuation for the player exceeded £10m.

But in the end, the Wanderers’ offer did not meet the expectations.

Cardiff’s head coach Mick McCarthy revealed he was delighted with Moore staying.

He told Wales Online: “Of course I was. You don’t want to lose a player who scored 20 goals the season before.

Lage drops transfer hint

Wolverhampton Wanderers were active during the transfer window this summer, bringing in Jose Sa, Yerson Mosquera, Francisco Trincao and Hwang Hee-Chan.

There were various links to the likes of Lille’s midfielder, Renato Sanches and defender Sven Botman throughout the summer, and Wolves ended up submitting a bid of £25m for the Dutch, on deadline day.

The French outfit’s asking price for Botman was apparently £35million, and therefore the two sides were unable from come to an agreement.

Head coach Bruno Lage is now left with an 18-man squad after the transfer window, and has Jonny Otto and Pedro Neto sidelined with long-term injuries.

Wolverhampton Wanderers look set to be without their talisman Raul Jimenez for their Premier League meeting at Vicarage Road against Watford, on Saturday.

Head coach Bruno Lage will be hopeful of a first win this campaign following three successive defeats to Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

Despite being yet to find the back of the net, Wolves have enjoyed a different and more attacking style of play under the new boss.

They could be missing Jimenez against the Hornets, however, after not releasing the striker for international duty.

Wolves stopped Jimenez from travelling to Mexico for international duty as the country is currently on the red list.
