Is Wolverhampton Wanderers Head Coach Kenny Jackett’s iron fist unclenching?
When Jackett first arrived at Molineux from Millwall, he came with a clear modus operandi.
He cleared out the players he didn’t want, either by selling, loaning or just giving them away.
Those he still couldn’t get rid of he threw into exile.
If you didn’t fit the plan Jackett had made there was no coming back, no second chances.
And you couldn’t argue with the results as Wolverhampton Wanderers tore up League One, dominating the third tier and returned to the Championship after just one season.
But has Jackett mellowed in his position?
Earlier this week we reported that Jackett has not ruled out Razak Boukari resurrecting his Wolves career, with the 27-year-old Togo winger set to return to fitness after injury problems had plagued his first two years at the club.
Now it’s the turn of 23-year-old Icelandic international Bjorn Sigurdarson.
The striker was one of the players Jackett had previously farmed out on loan, joining Norwegian top-flight side Molde on a twelve month loan which expires this week.
With no talk of a potential permanent move, Jackett is surprisingly open to the idea of handing him a second chance at Molineux.
“He is due back. There`s been no talk at the moment between the two clubs as to whether it`s going to be a permanent move, Obviously it will be up to them to make the first move but they haven`t approached us about a permanent transfer.’ Jackett told the Birmingham Mail.
He continued: “How he feels now about coming back here? I`d have to speak to him and see if he wants to give it another go and say: ‘I want a fresh chance`.
“I`d need to speak to him first to see what he feels. I gave him a lot of chances last year and I didn`t think he took them and then he was adamant that going back was something he wanted to explore. So I will stay open minded and speak to him when he comes back.”
