Breaking News: Premier League reaction to £40m out of wolves ahead of January transfer…

Jose Sa could see his Wolverhampton Wanderers career come to an end in a matter of months as Saudi Pro League sides are circling for his signature.

Goalkeeping coach Neil Cutler has already been challenged to source a potential replacement for the 30-year-old.

Sa is being coveted after maintaining his regular starting berth between the sticks despite upheaval during the summer at Molineux.

Wolverhampton Wanderers could make a ‘really significant’ decision to cash in on Jose Sa when the winter window opens for business, and transfer insider Dean Jones has told GIVEMESPORT how likely a mid-season departure from Molineux is at this stage.

The goalkeeper has maintained his regular starting spot between the sticks despite a summer of turmoil which saw Gary O’Neil move into the hot seat following Julen Lopetegui’s decision to walk away from the head coach post just a matter of days before the season got underway.

Although Sa has been on Wolves’ books since sealing a £6.8million switch from Greek giants Olympiacos in July 2021, there are doubts over whether he will remain with the Premier League outfit for much longer after he has been the subject of interest.

Wolves could pocket up to £40million after Sa has become the latest name to work his way onto the radar of big-spending clubs in the Saudi Pro League, according to The Sun, with his suitors hoping a lucrative contract could be enough to entice him away from the West Midlands.

The report suggests Wanderers goalkeeping coach Neil Cutler has already been tasked with seeking a potential replacement for the 30-year-old, who has failed to miss a single minute of Premier League action since the campaign got underway.But Wolves are in a strong negotiating position and not necessarily under pressure to cash in as Sa only penned a new contract worth £40,000-per-week in September, tying him down to the club until the summer of 2027.

He has also returned to Molineux in high spirits after making his international debut during Portugal’s 2-0 win over Liechtenstein last week, ending a lengthy wait after receiving countless call-ups and being named on the bench more than 40 times.

But interest from the Middle East comes after respected reporter Jones told GIVEMESPORT that Wanderers received formal enquiries over the shot-stopper’s availability during the summer, with admirers being keen to take advantage of their well-documented financial problems forcing them to cash in on several stars.

Premier League rivals Nottingham Forest were among the sides to plot a move for Sa as they looked to build on maintaining their top flight status, but a switch to the City Ground failed to come to fruition and he remained among O’Neil’s options instead.

Jones believes offloading Sa in January could hamper Wolves as they aim to continue progressing under O’Neil’s tutelage as it would result in a key man jumping ship midway through the campaign.

Although the reputable journalist is aware that it is unusual for clubs to sanction the exit of their No.1 halfway through the season, he feels Wanderers will have to seriously consider taking the money if a big-money offer is tabled in the coming months.
