Wolves boss Paul Lambert is ready to shake-up his struggling side in the January window by wielding the axe on as many as six players, according to The Birmingham Mail.
Lambert inherited a struggling side from Walter Zenga after coming into Molineux last month and faces a challenge on his hands to push the Midlands outfit away from the threat of relegation, with Wolves languishing in 18th position and just five points off the bottom three.
However, Lambert will waste no time in shaking up the squad during the mid-season window and is ready to axe a number of players who have only experienced a short stint with the club, including Manchester United loanee Cameron Borthwick-Jackson.
Borthwick-Jackson has failed to establish himself in the Wolves side and will return to his parent club next month, with the same situation on the cards for Benfica loanee Joao Teixeira.
Two summer arrivals, Paul Gladon and Prince Oniangue, could also be forced out of the club and there is question marks hanging over the futures of Richard Stearman and Jed Wallace too.
Such a wealth of exits will free up space within Lambert’s squad to bring in new faces, with the former Aston Villa boss eyeing a cut-price deal for Blackburn Rovers winger Ben Marshall.
Paul Lambert’s side face Bristol City at Molineux in their next Sky Bet Championship match on Boxing Day, in a match that Lambert will be desperate to win to record consecutive league victories.
