NUNO Espirito Santo is crying out for Wolves to sign new players this month.

The Molineux outfit were beaten by Manchester United in the FA Cup on Wednesday night and are facing an injury pile-up.

Because of this, Santo is encouraging the club's hierarchy to sort out new signings ahead of their clash with Saints this weekend.

The Wolves manager said: "We are working on it. I would like it to be ASAP, of course.

"But things take time. Things take time. It's like that."

Wolves are now just three points ahead of Saints, although they have a far superior goal difference to Ralph Hasenhuttl's side.

The last time the two teams met ended in a 1-1 draw.

Danny Ings had given Saints the lead, only for Wolves to strike back from the penalty spot.
