Wolves are lining up a January bid for Blackburn midfielder Ben Marshall, according to a report.

The Sun claim that Molineux manager Paul Lambert is set to return to his former club to make an offer for the 25-year-old wide player.

It is said that Marshall is rated at around £1.5million by his club even though he is out of contract at the end of the season.

The former Leicester and Stoke player has rejected a new contract from Blackburn but Wolves will have to meet his £25,000-a-week wage demands to secure a deal.

Marshall predominantly plays on the right side of midfield and has been a mainstay of the Blackburn side this season, starting 19 of their 20 Championship encounters.

The former England Under-21 international is an experienced Championship player, scoring 18 goals and supplying 27 assists in 179 matches in the competition.

Wolves came from two goals behind to draw 4-4 against Fulham in a thriller at Molineux on Saturday.

The point against the London side lifted the Midlands club to 22 points and 19th position in the Championship table.
