Mick McCarthy has outlined his intention to keep Sunderland defender Neill Collins at Wolves permanently.
Collins was on loan at Molineux until 2nd January and scored one goal in three appearances for the club.
Sunderland boss Roy Keane appears open to allowing the defender to return to Wolves on a long-term basis.
McCarthy is now planning talks with his Black Cats counterpart in the hope of arranging a suitable deal for Collins.
"We want to make Neill Collins' loan from Sunderland a permanent transfer," said McCarthy.
"It is a possibility now the window is open.
"I have already spoken to Roy Keane and had a discussion about that."
Collins could become the third loan player to sign a permanent deal at Wolves after wingers Michael Kightly and Michael McIndoe tied up their contracts on Monday.
