Wolves watch Ligue 2 starlet


Wolves are reportedly watching Lens' talented teenage midfielder Jean-Ricner Bellegarde, having scouted the player at the weekend.

The 19-year-old midfielder is seen as one of the brightest talents in Ligue 2 and a rare positive to come out of Le Sang et Or’s dismal campaign so far.

MadeinLens.com claim the Championship leaders were present to scout Bellegarde during Lens’ Coupe de France clash with Reims on Sunday, which they eventually won 3-2 after extra-time.

Wolves could be making plans for the future if the likes of Romain Saiss or Ruben Neves are targeted by bigger clubs following their success in the Championship.

However, Lens are understood to be opposed to letting Bellegarde go this season.
