Wolves journalist has been sharing his thoughts on Old Gold striker Rafa Mir and his future at the Midlands club. 

This comes after Edwards made an appearance on a recent video from the ’s YouTube channel alongside Nathan Judah where the duo spoke about Wolves’ current attacking players.

On the subject of Mir, who has been on loan at Spanish club SD Huesca since the 2020 January , Edwards had this to say about the player and his future.

He said: “Ultimately it’s a decision for [Bruno] Lage to make, I think, but I would lean towards that he’d be sold, I’d be more surprised to see him at the club.

“I think you’ve got an asset there that you can get a good fee for. I think he’s entering the final year of his contract at Wolves as well, so I think the time to cash in on him probably would be now unless they plan on giving him a new deal.

“I think there’ll be interest, not just from Huesca where he’s been on loan, but I think prominent clubs in Spain because he’s scored a lot of goals in La Liga, so for me, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him sold and sold at a pretty nice fee.”

Wolves signed Mir back in the 2018 January transfer window from Valencia B for a fee of £1.8 million, as per Transfermarkt. Since then, the 24-year-old, who is currently valued at £10.8 million, has been on loan deals at clubs such as Las Palmas and Nottingham Forest prior to his loan at Huesca.

TIF Thoughts on Joe Edwards’ comments on Rafa Mir and his future…

Overall, Mir has made just four appearances for Wolves since his arrival (per Transfermarkt).

Given how Mir barely got a chance to play for Wolves under former manager Nuno Espirito Santo, it’s understandable why Edwards thinks the club could sell the Spaniard this summer.

What should Wolves do with Rafa Mir this summer?

Keep him in the squad for next season

However, with Bruno Lage now in charge of the club, it will be interesting to see what he thinks of Mir and whether or not he thinks the player is good enough to be in his squad for the future.

In our view, if Lage doesn’t see a future for Mir at Wolves, then perhaps selling him and picking up a suitable transfer fee for him in the process could prove to be beneficial for all parties.
