Wolverhampton Wanderers won't make a decision on whether to offer a contract to striker Juan Agudelo until he has recovered from a minor calf problem.

Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Kenny Jackett has revealed that no decision has been made regarding the potential signing of striker Juan Agudelo.

Free agent Agudelo has been on trial with the Championship side for the past week, but after the American international suffered a calf problem, Jackett has insisted that the club will bide their time before deciding whether to offer the forward a deal.

The 52-year-old is quoted by the Express & Star as saying: "He hasn't trained for the last couple of days so we're hoping that he can be back out there today but we're not sure.

"He's basically still on trial and no decision has been made. Perhaps he'll still be here next week but we'll have more idea today to see whether he can get back.

"Hopefully, it's a short-term injury and the trial could carry over to next week depending on the severity of the injury."

Should Wolves choose to push forward with an attempt to sign Agudelo, they may have to wait several weeks for a work permit to be issued.
