Exclusive: Mills touts potential Wolves exit after transfer deal agreed
Danny Mills suggests that Wolves are preparing to sell some of their first-team players after the arrival of Daniel Podence at Molineux.
The former Leeds and England defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, says that Nuno Espirito Santo will know he has players who could leave in the near future and is prepping accordingly.
The midlands outfit confirmed the arrival of Portuguese winger Podence late in the January transfer window, the 24-year-old having spent a year-and-a-half in Greece with Olympiakos.
Mills says that a strong squad is important for Nuno moving forward but has touted one or two exits from the club that the new arrival could cover for.
Mills told Football Insider: “They’re building something. Nuno Espirito Santo is clearly there, they’re good at getting players in, their recruitment policy has been very, very good and they’re starting to build a squad now.
“This season they’ve had to compete with European football as well as with the Premier League and they know added numbers and added quality is never a bad thing.

“They’ve got players also that they know that might attract big offers in the summer so getting extra bodies in now, getting them into the club and used to the way that they play I think is good business. They’re preparing for the future, whether a couple of players get pinched.”
Podence played 27 times for Olympiakos this season before his move to England, scoring five goals and chipping in with five assists across all competitions, including in the Champions League.
He made his Wolves debut in the 0-0 draw with Manchester United, playing 14 minutes after coming off the bench.
