New Wolves boss Paul Lambert is looking at the prospect of bringing former attacker Bakary Sako back to Molineux in the January transfer window, BBC journalist Pat Murphy reports.
The 28-year-old was a fan favourite at the club before leaving to play in the Premier League with Crystal Palace but the Mali international has seen opportunities decrease since, which has alerted Lambert to the player’s situation.
Lambert rates Sako highly,knows he was loved @OfficialWolves but unsure about African Cup of Nations involvement. A possible loan deal.

However, Sako’s involvement at the African Cup of Nations in the New Year presents a potential issue for Lambert to overcome, as the experienced attacker would be unavailable until the final few months of the season.
With Wolves languishing at the wrong end of the Championship table, Lambert will be searching the market in January for additions who can provide an instant impact – as Sako’s return from the international tournament could come too late.
Sako previously spent three-years with Wolves, scoring 38 goals in 122 appearances in all competitions.
