Exclusive: Steve Bull backs Wolves to move for Dwight McNeil this summer

In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Steve Bull, who made 561 appearances for Wolves, has encouraged Wolves to go all out and sign Dwight McNeil from Burnley, claiming he’s gone under the radar.

Wolves have struggled in front of goal this season after finding the net just 28 times, and Bull believes McNeil, who Wolves reportedly targeted last summer, would add goals and creativity to the Midlands side.

Should Wolves sign Dwight McNeil

Yes, he's a top player!

Yes, he's a top player!

No, there are better options!

No, there are better options!

The 21-year old has just been called up to the latest England U21 squad and boasts seven goals and 14 assists in 98 games for Burnley.

McNeil often seems to go under the radar but showed a big glimpse of his quality with his fantastic goal in the win against Everton at Goodison Park last weekend.

McNeil featuring for the Clarets certainly hasn’t put off Bull who thinks he could be a great signing for Wolves.

Speaking on the young Premier League winger, Bull told FFC:

“It’s very rare that talented players like that go under the radar, Leicester found one in James Maddison. So, yeah all day long I’d take him.

“Put him in a good side full of talented and skilful players like we’ve got and it might bring him on leaps and bounds.

“So, you never know what might happen but, any new kids on the block will be good for the club.”

Who is this player?

Wolves sold Diogo Jota to Liverpool in the summer and lost Raul Jimenez to a fractured skull last year so it’s been a tough season for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side to find goals in the final third.

McNeil is currently Burnley’s joint 10th top scorer of all time in the Premier League at just 21-years old it could be a good player for Wolves to target this summer.
