Sam Vokes has nearly become the forgotten man around Molineux.
The 22-year-old Wales international came to Wolves 3 and a half years ago and in that time has started just 13 times in all competitions.
He’s been out on loan no fewer than five times, with Burnley becoming his latest adopted club.
It’s hardly surprising that he has admitted that he has become frustrated at Wolves.
‘I’ve been mainly on the bench this season and despite coming on in games it does become frustrating and there comes a point where you need to get out and play some games.’ Vokes told Sky Sports.
That is exactly what he has gone and done and in the past month he has scored 4 goals in 6 games for club and country.
He continued: ‘This was the perfect opportunity for me to get some regular football, especially with the Christmas period coming round and all the games that come with it.
‘Two months is a good amount of time for me to get my head down and get some games in, so hopefully after that I can get a chance back at Wolves and then it is down to me to take it.’
It’s difficult to see what he can do while out on loan to nudge himself up the pecking order at Wolves.
Would he be better off remaining out on loan for the remainder of the season if he can get settled at a club?
Vital Wolves Comment: This week, Mick McCarthy suggested that if someone asked the Wolves fans who still backed him as gaffer, then he would get a positive response from about 80% of the fan base.
So we thought we would put that theory to the test and have made it our front page poll.
Currently our Mick is virtually spot on with 82% backing him, 15% not in favour of him remaining as manager and 3% sitting on the fence.
