Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo wants January signings to rescue season

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo admits he needs new signings to help rescue his season.

Santo's men have slumped to 12th in the Premier League table following one win in the last six outings heading into today's trip to Brighton.

To make matters worse Santo has seen the goals dry up since Raul Jimenez suffered his sickening head injury at Arsenal.

Wolves have scored just four times in the last six games and with Jimenez expected to be sidelined for several more months with a fractured skull, Santo is desperate to bring in a new forward.

Santo has been linked with a £6m move for Cameroon international Stephane Bahoken from Ligue 1 side Angers, along with Barcelona wing-back Junior Firpo.

Santo is holding talks with chairman Jeff Shi about a number of possible targets in this month's window and he said: "Of course, we have to sit down and plan.

"I think it's a good chance to rebalance our squad. We will see, but we are ready to make decisions."

In the meantime, Santo insists he will continue to keep faith with some of his young, inexperienced stars despite knowing mistakes will happen.

He added: "I already trusted them before the last game (at Manchester United). You trust them because you know they work hard.

"We know that they are young and there will be mistakes, but it's up to us to correct the mistakes and make them become better.

"It's simple. We'll try to improve them. Football is made up of good moments and bad moments, and it's about how they react to it."
