WOLVES have invited former Celtic defender Bobo Balde to join up with the squad for our Australian tour.

The 33-year-old, was a target for Mick McCarthy last season, however his wages proved to be a stumbling block.

But now as a free agent, Balde could be set to join the club, however as ever Mick will face competition from Birmingham and Burnley for the experienced Guinea international.

Vital Wolves Comment: We`ve been crying out for experience and this man has it. Wouldn`t be convinced if he was the only defender we signed to strengthen at the back, but following the previous two signings of Halford and Zubar. I think Balde could be a great addition to strengthen th depth of the back line. What do you think? Let us know on the forum!
