Wolves winger Jordan Graham could be set to leave the club on loan once more with Steve Evans’ Gillingham sniffing around in League One.

The winger, now 24, has not been able to get near to the club’s first-team in recent years, and with his contract expiring in the summer, might see his next move as a trial to get some decent sized teams interested in him when he is likely to be a free agent at the end of the campaign.

Furthermore, if he wants any future at the club, it would take a remarkable loan spell for them to stand up and notice him as someone who they could go to in the future.

According to reports from Kent Online, the Scottish manager is looking for options on the wing for the second half of the table where the Gills an outside shot for the play-offs, being just six points off.

It’s hard to predict just how effective the winger will be at this stage. Since joining from local rivals Aston Villa in 2015, he has not really had a prolonged period of football at any club.

Would you be fuming if the Podence deal fell through?

Yes, he would be a great addition

Not if we bought someone of a higher calibre

Last season he spent the first half of the season on loan at Ipswich in the Championship, however, could only manage four games in total and he was dropped for every other. After that, he got a move to League One where he played for Oxford United, where he played much more regularly, scoring once from 16 games.

Turning 25 in March, there is sadly nothing to suggest that he any chance of making it as a Wanderers player at this stage. He has played four games in the Premier League 2 and two in the EFL Trophy this year but has failed to score in assist in either of them.

It’s a shame, as during the 15/16 season when he initially joined he looked a serious prospect in the Championship. A lot younger at the time, he managed to register six assists and one goal in 11 games in second-tier, however, for whatever reason it just hasn’t progressed.

If this move to Gillingham does get done, then he will have another chance of proving his worth at that level – and that could get a decent queue of teams lining up for a player who is likely to be available on a free.
