Wolves are in talks with Stoke over a possible deal for full-back Moritz Bauer.
Austria international Bauer joined Stoke on a four-and-a-half-year-deal from Rubin Kazan over the summer but fell out of favour under former boss Gary Rowett.
The Swiss-born defender has not featured for the club since September but could make a surprise switch to Molineux on a potential loan deal, despite new Stoke boss Nathan Jones saying on Monday that he “is excited to work with the player”.
Highly-rated Matt Doherty is Wolves’ first-choice right-back and it is thought the club see Bauer as someone who could provide competition in that area of the field.
Doherty has started all 22 Premier League games that Wolves have played this season.
