Wolves’ Bright Enobakhare shouldn’t see contract extended after Wigan loan struggles

Wolverhampton Wanderers are well on track to cement their name amongst the top-tier of clubs in the Premier League.

After winning the Championship title in 2018, they finished seventh in their maiden season back in the promised land, thus qualifying for the Europa League.

This season, so far, proves that they are here to stay, rather than doing a ‘Burnley‘ and struggling as a result of playing across the continent.

In the top-flight, Nuno Santo steered his side to an 11-game unbeaten run which only came to an end last weekend at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur, who needed an injury-time header from Jan Vertonghen to snatch all three points.

It’s just their third defeat of this Premier League campaign; still fewer than defending champions Manchester City, their red neighbours and even Spurs too.

Their continued presence at the top end of the table means it will be harder for fringe players to break into the senior fold unless they clearly have something about them, and the same goes for any players currently out on loan.

Bright Enobakhare is one who may suffer as a result, even if Nuno lacks viable options in the striking department.

Does Bright Enobakhare have a future at Wolves?

Only Raul Jimenez and Patrick Cutrone play a role in the first-team while Benny Ashley-Seal seems more likely to breakthrough than the 21-year-old given his three appearances on the bench this season.

Enobakhare is currently on loan at Championship side Wigan Athletic and let’s just say his spell at the DW Stadium has been the complete opposite of his forename.

The goalless striker, rated at £450k by Transfermarkt, has played just 131 minutes all season for the Latics despite being fit to feature.

It’s been such a poor spell that Wigan Today have claimed that he is a shoo-in to return to the west Midlanders next month, and with his contract expiring in the summer, his future at the club is surely in serious doubt.

The Nigerian youth international has played 49 times for Wolves, scoring just three times – a pretty puny goal return for a forward.

Given Nuno’s preference to Jimenez, him splashing out £16m for Cutrone and the club being linked to RB Salzburg striker Hwang Hee-Chan, it seems that the 21-year-old’s time at Molineux is bleak rather than bright.
