In the running
Wolverhampton Wanderers is the last team to be linked to young James Graham.
The 15-year-old was on trial with Manchester United in March and is said to have impressed Old Trafford’s talent scouts.
He has since signed for the Scottish side of Ross County, where he behaved well for U16s and 18-year-olds before the coronavirus lockout.
These performances also alerted Celtic, but Man United still wants to sign it when football resumes later this year.
However, according to the Scottish Sun, they will face competition from wolves, who remain determined to enhance their development with some of the best talents in British and European football.
‘Without a doubt’
Ruben Neves said he “definitely” wants to return to Porto before the end of his career.
The Portuguese international rose to the ranks of the Lisbon giants and led the club before his transfer to the Wolves in 2017.
Since coming to Molineux, Neves has become one of the main midfielders in the Premier League, with the Wolves claiming a place in the top four.
His form has won admirers from Manchester United and Liverpool in recent months, saying he has no interest in moving to Old Trafford.
But he is still keen to finish an emotional return to his childhood club, he said.
In an interview with Portuguese media O Jogo, he said he wanted to join Porto after not winning the title of champion in his first spell.
“We know we can do it. “
This is the bullish top four verdict proposed by Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Raul Jimenez.
Before the Premier League suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Wolves were on the verge of breaking into the Champions League spots in their second season back in the top flight.
With nine games left, the Wolves are in 6th place – just two points behind Manchester United and another three behind Chelsea, who are currently last in the top four.
The Premier League remains committed to ending the season, despite the stringent social distancing guidelines still in effect across the country.
And as the season returns, Jimenez is confident his team can finish the job and seal a historic return to elite competition in Europe.
“It’s great for a team that has been promoted [two years ago] and this is only our second season in the Premier League, “he told Sky Sports.
Coady opens on canceled season threat
Conor Coady expressed sympathy for the players who have had their season canceled and admitted that he would be sorry if the same thing happened in the Premier League.
Wolverhampton Wanderers captain was on talkSPORT when it was announced that the Football Association had ratified the decision to cancel all football below the three national leagues – with all results deleted and promotions canceled.
Although the Premier League remains determined to end the season, the FA’s precedent will affect a number of teams from top to bottom across the country.
The coronavirus pandemic has seen all elite football in the UK suspended indefinitely, leaving the Wolves’ pursuit for the top four and a Europa League crown pending.
Wolves have played more games than any other elite team, but Coady said his teammates are desperate for the season to end naturally.
“I cannot imagine what some of them think, you are going through the season to finish as strong as you can,” he said.
“It’s really hard to take, it’s hard to say, it’s a lot to take, especially for the players involved. It’s so difficult, it will take some time before you can actually finish a season.
“We would be devastated if the season ended now and you couldn’t finish the season. It would be horrible, because seasons like this don’t happen too often. We loved every part of it, it’s our first season in Europe for a lot of boys. We loved every minute of it, I couldn’t tell you how many games we have played so far because we have enjoyed it so much.
“From a personal point of view, I want it to end as much as anyone. It would be heartbreaking if we couldn’t. But we understand the situation we are in and we understand that the most important thing is the safety of people, we hope it will be finished, but at the right time. ”
