A big decision for O’Neil: 3 players Wolves must send out on loan this summer



With the summer transfer window approaching, here are three Wolves players that Gary O’Neil might consider loaning out in the coming months.


For several Wolves first-team players, the 2023/24 season has been a great success. Players like Joao Gomes and Matheus Cunha have ignited the Premier League with their performances.

O’Neil instilled a strong sense of belief in the Molineux crowd, which has been rewarded on the pitch.

Now, as the summer transfer window approaches, decisions must be taken on how to keep the good times going.

Departures are expected in some form as the Wolves manager begins his first true pre-season to shape his squad.

However, many players may be sent out on loan in order to continue their growth and go to the next level.

As a result, this article has identified three players O’Neil should loan out this summer to keep their trajectory on track.

Nathan Fraser

Nathan Fraser’s talent is apparent. Despite his few appearances in the Wolves’ first squad, the striker has scored several important goals this season.

The 19-year-old made his Carabao Cup debut for O’Neill against Blackpool at the start of the season, scoring in a 5-0 win.

Fraser was given additional opportunity under O’Neil after repeated injuries in 2024. This ended in the striker scoring a crucial equaliser against Brentford in the FA Cup, sending the game to extra time.

Fraser, on the other hand, has failed to keep up with the Premier League pace since his last goal and has been relegated to the bench.

Wolves cannot afford to waste a striker of his age’s potential. If Fraser is given additional game time on loan, he could develop into a future top-division striker.

A move to a Championship squad in the coming season would help him harness his talents and propel him to the next level. If Fraser can score 10 goals in the second tier, he could be a viable alternative for O’Neil in the 2025/26 season.

Hugo Bueno

Another player with much of promise. Hugo Bueno’s season has just not gone as expected.

The Spaniard has battled to break into the starting lineup due to Rayan Ait-Nouri’s outstanding performance for Wolves.

However, even when an opportunity in the lineup presented itself, the wing-back was unable to capitalize. Hugo Bueno now ranks among the Premier League’s lowest ten players based on his average rating.

As a result, Matt Doherty is frequently selected by O’Neil when Nelson Semedo or Ait-Nouri are unavailable.

Despite this, the Spaniard clearly has the potential to be a great wing-back. If Wolves manage to keep Ait-Nouri, a loan move could help Hugo Bueno restore form.

A season away at a good Championship club or a recently promoted Premier League squad might reignite the 21-year-old’s form.

Enso Gonzalez

The Paraguayan winger was one of the few players to join the Wolves last summer, with O’Neil securing his signing toward the end of the transfer window.

Despite the fact that he is only 19 years old, the attacker shows great promise.

Some have even predicted Enso Gonzalez to be Pedro Neto’s heir, with Wolves’ star player frequently linked with Arsenal.

Gonzalez came off the bench against Luton last weekend, and there is a good probability he may make his first appearance under O’Neill in the next three games. However, a loan move could enable the winger acquire these opportunities on a more consistent basis.
