Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Stale Solbakken is hoping to call upon Manchester United and Arsenal to boost his push for promotion by allowing him to take two midfielders on-loan.

Solbakken is desperate to strengthen his side in order to secure an instant return to the Premier League and would like to call upon the services of Emmanuel Frimpong and Robbie Brady.

According to The Mirror, Wolves attempted to land Manchester United midfielder Brady in the summer and are now keen to renew their interest.

The 20-year-old was sent out on loan to Hull last season where he earned rave reviews, and has since become a member of the Republic of Ireland squad under Giovanni Trapattoni.

Solbakken admitted that he was looking to bring players to the club and it could well be that United and Arsenal are approached during the international break.

"We have done some research and there's something we want to test out and we'll see this week if it's possible," Solbakken told the Mirror. "I have left it with Jez Moxey. The list is not very long because it's difficult to do something at this time of year."

Is it perhaps unsurprising that Wolves are keen to bring Frimpong to the club as he was due to spend last season with the club before injuring his cruciate ligament.

Frimpong has been working hard at Arsenal to regain his fitness and has been pushing for a recall to the first team squad.

However, the Gunners may decide that he needs to get regular first team football and a loan deal may be the best option.

Wolves have started the season well under their new manager and currently lie in third place after picking up 19 points from their opening 10 Championship fixtures.
