Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly in talks over a loan capture of unwanted Newcastle United midfielder Jack Colback.

The Daily Mail are reporting that the 27-year-old is in dialogue with the big-spending Championship outfit and that he could seal an initial temporary switch to Molineux before the summer transfer window closes at 11pm tomorrow night.

Colback was told earlier this summer that he would not be part of Rafa Benitez's plans. Since then the player has been banished to train with the youths.

And despite interest from Hull City, it looks as though Nuno Espirito Santo's men have stepped ahead of their second tier rivals to sign the former Sunderland defender.

The report claims the ambitious project in the Black Country has turned Colback's head, with Wolves already splashing the cash to sign the likes of Ruben Neves on mega money deals so far this summer.

Should the Colback deal go through it will open up further wriggle room for Benitez to add to his squad before the window slams shut, with the manager eyeing a striker, defender, goalkeeper and attacking midfielder to strengthen his Magpies ranks.
