What has Luke Hatfield said about Wolves reviving their interest?

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Hatfield claimed he’s ‘sure’ Wolves will look at Sanches again in January or the summer. 

The Express and Star journalist told GMS: “It’s going to be a fair bit of money to get him to the club but he’s one that they clearly wanted in the summer and he’s one that I’m sure they’ll look at again in January and if not the summer after. 

“It’s just an issue of getting that deal done if they want it and the money adds up but it’s always the case, isn’t it? Other clubs are always going to be interested in similar players to you and you’ve got to find a way to beat them to the punch.”
