Wolves boss Bruno Lage pleas to board: We need signings

Wolves boss Bruno Lage has pleaded to the board to buy in the final month of the summer market.

Lage was speaking after defeat at Leeds United on Saturday.

“We are unlucky with the three injuries, with Raul (Jimenez), Joao (Moutinho) and Adama (Traore)," he said.

“Imagine these three players on the bench.

“But even that is not enough. We know that and we've talked about it.

“We knew since last year and since the day that I came that we can create a strong team and even today I have no doubts about that.

“But we need players to create that strong squad that we need, especially in these days with five subs.

“And we can feel it, maybe after 70 minutes, we saw Leeds doing substitutions and my option was to continue with those players.

“I was pleased Chem (Campbell) played 10 minutes like he did but I repeat what I said, it's time to be patient because we are talking with players, I know the club are talking with players and those players can come and increase the level of the team and the squad. And they will give solutions that we didn't have today and didn't have in the last seven games of last season."
