Wolves believe a deal to sign Tammy Abraham during the January transfer window is not dead yet, it has been claimed.

Abraham has scored 16 Championship goals this season at Aston Villa, the club he joined on loan from Chelsea last summer.

Wolves have been interested in taking him to Molineux and have been in talks with Chelsea and the player’s representatives over a loan deal until the end of the season.

But the move seemed dead in the water after it emerged earlier today that Abraham has decided to snub the chance to join Wolves in favour of spending the rest of the season at Villa.

However, according to the Express & Star, Wolves have not lost of hope of signing the striker and believe there is still a chance to take him away from the Villans this month.

The Premier League outfit believe that the real issue is FIFA not yet ratifying the move as rules do not allow a player to represent more than two clubs in one season.

Abraham featured for Chelsea in the Community Shield before joining Aston Villa, but Wolves are confident that the situation can be resolved.

They remain hopeful of convincing the 21-year-old striker to move to Molineux for the latter half of the season this month.
