New Wolves boss Jackett closes in on Ricketts reunion

Wolves are closing in on the capture of Bolton full-back Sam Ricketts, with new boss Kenny Jackett keen to be reunited with the 31-year-old at Molineaux, according to Sky Sports.

The transfer, which is said to be in the six-figure department, will be confirmed once Ricketts has undergone a medical at Wolves, with the process scheduled for Wednesday.

This will be the second time that Jackett has signed Ricketts, having swooped to sign the then-22-year-old star following his departure from Telford United in 2004.

Speaking to the Express & Star, Jackett said: “If all goes well today I will be delighted that Sam will be my first signing as head coach of Wolves. Sam can fill any of the back four positions and brings a wealth of experience and quality to our club.

“Professionally he is a first-class individual and I am looking forward to working with him again.”

Bolton recently announced the signing of Alex Baptiste from Blackpool, and Trotters manager Dougie Freedman was honest when asked about Rickett’s future at the club.

He said: “Sam’s been a very good servant for this football club but I can’t, honestly, sit here and guarantee him a position in the team.”
