WOLVES boss Kenny Jackett has ruled out a move for up-for-grabs Sunderland striker Danny Graham.

Out-of-favour Graham has remained on Wearside at the end of the summer transfer window, despite Sunderland’s willingness to offload the £5million frontman.

Graham has been linked with a loan move to a host of Championship clubs after both Watford and Middlesbrough made enquiries with Sunderland earlier in the summer.

But despite talks between Graham’s agent and Wolves’ hierarchy, Jackett insists the newly-promoted Championship side are not looking to sign the 29-year-old.

“There’s nothing there,” said Jackett when asked about rumours of a loan move for either Graham or Leicester striker Chris Wood.

Graham has continued to train with Sunderland’s first-team squad after returning to the Academy of Light from last season’s loan spells at Hull and then Boro.

Gus Poyet has been impressed by Graham’s attitude and handed him a squad number at the start of the season.

But with Connor Wickham, Steven Fletcher and Jozy Altidore also at Poyet’s disposal, Sunderland are keen to remove the former Swansea man from the wage bill.
