Wolves forward Michael Zyro is poised to move to League One side Charlton on loan until the end of the season, according to a report.
South London Press claims that Zyro, 25, has been on the radar of the Addicks and manager Karl Robinson has dropped some major hints that he is in the transfer market to sign a player like the Poland international on loan.
After Saturday’s 3-1 win against Walsall, Robinson confirmed that he has been given the go-ahead to sign up an attacking player on loan, which is now understood the be Wolves’ Zyro.
“We got the green light on one before kick-off,” said Robinson, quoted by South London Press. “I’m not going to tell you who it is. I don’t want to jinx it.
“He is 6ft 1ins or 6ft 2ins, quick and left-footed, which gives us a bit more balance. He can play as a striker, as a nine. We’ll get him to the training ground on Monday.”
Zyro has only made two appearances in Wolves’ first-team this season after failing to break into Nuno Espirito Santo’s plans.
The ex-Legia Warsaw wide-forward, who can play on the wings or as a striker, had suffered a serious cruciate ligament injury in April 2016 and only returned from it in August.
He is now said to be due to join Charlton, who occupy sixth-place in League One and look as though they have the capability to finish inside the top six and secure at least a play-off place this season.
Football Insider verdict
Zyro has not had many chances to show his ability since returning from injury and that is perhaps largely down to the major transfer splurge that Nuno went on in the summer. The Poland international is a decent player and will be a very good signing for Charlton. He does not appear to have a future at Wolves though as the club are expected to get promoted to the Premier League by the end of the season. That means Zyro will return and perhaps be even further down the pecking order than when he first left. The loan move is good for all parties, but really, the attacker needs to be looking to leave Molineux for good.
