Wolves winger Goncalo Guedes looks set to swap Benfica for Villarreal this month after struggling for game time in the Portuguese capital. That’s according to journalist Pedro Sepulveda, who claims the deal with Villarreal will have an option to buy at the end of the campaign.

Guedes only joined Wolves in August 2022, making the switch from Valencia for a reported fee of £27.5million. However, he was loaned to Benfica last January and his time with his old club was extended in the summer for the during of the current campaign.

However, he has made just nine league appearances for the Portuguese giants this season and he will be hoping for more minutes should he complete the switch to Spain.

Ings targeted

Wolves are mulling over an approach to sign West Ham United and former Aston Villa striker Danny Ings this month. The Molineux outfit are on the lookout for a striker and they see Ings as someone they might be able to sign on loan, according to the Telegraph.

Ings has struggled for minutes since making the switch to the London Stadium last January and this season he has made just one league start. Wolves, though, could see him as someone who is capable of leading the line as the club look to push themselves into the top half of the Premier League table and keep on the right side of Profit and Sustainability rules under Gary O’Neil.

Cundle recalled

Luke Cundle has been recalled from his loan at Plymouth Argyle ahead of his expected switch to Stoke City. The 21-year-old spent the first half of this season with the Pilgrims, helping the club to find a foothold in the Championship following their promotion from League One last season.

However, it seems Cundle is set for a permanent move, with a reunion with former Plymouth boss Steven Schumacher at Stoke on the cards, with a fee reported to be in the region of £1.5m. Bristol City were also keen on signing Cundle.
