Wolverhampton Wanderers finally bring in Danny Graham on loan from Sunderland.
When Yannick Sagbo was sent back to Hull after being a resounding flop at Molineux, we all thought that Wolves Head Coach Kenny Jackett would return to his striking short-list and continue to work his way down.
After all, we had seen Wolves fail in a host of moves for strikers since storming League One last season.
Having lost out on Callum Wilson, Chris Wood, Max Clayton, Andy Delort, Patrick Bamford, Danny Graham, Emmanuel Mayuka and Kei Kamara we settled for a loan move for Sagbo.
So who would be next on the list?
Well it appears Jackett went back through his list and revisited some previous targets.
The likes of Wilson, Clayton and Delort have all made permanent moves, whilst Bamford is also on a long-term loan so would be impossible.
With Chris Wood still making appearances in the Premier League for Leicester City, Sunderland’s Danny Graham seemed to be the only one we might have half a chance with.
The 29-year-old has been limited to just two minutes of football this season and hasn’t played for Sunderland since May 2013.
In fact since his £5million at the end of January 2013 he has made just 14 appearances for Sunderland and spent the whole of last season out on loan to Hull and Middlesbrough.
He will join up with the Wolves squad today after completing an emergency loan until December 31st over the weekend.
“I am delighted to have agreed a loan deal to join Wolves and am looking forward to meeting the lads on Monday and starting training,” said Graham to Wolves Official Website.
He added: “Wolves is a good club which has done very well over the last year and this is a good opportunity for me to try and play some regular football and get back to scoring goals.”
Jackett continued: “We feel this is a very good move for us,” said Jackett.
“He has the goalscoring record that we are looking for and experience of playing up front in the Championship.
“With our forward line he brings another dimension now with his experience and goalscoring record.
