Glenn Hoddle revealed Wolves have just missed out on a loan deal for Arsenal striker Jeremie Aliadiere.
With the transfer deadline fast approaching, Hoddle was close to borrowing the 21-year-old Frenchman to help his recovery from a long term knee injury.
"We won't stop looking and we had two players lined up to come in early last week only to fall through at the last minute," said the manager.
"We were close to getting the lad from Arsenal, Aliadiere, who's a fantastic player but that fell by the wayside.
"But there are still a few other options around."
Hoddle insists Wolves will still not "give up the ghost" when it comes to their playoff hopes despite being seven points off the pace after Saturday's 1-1 draw with Stoke.
And he hit back at Potters boss Tony Pulis, who took offence to Hoddle's description of his side as "direct" and "physical".
"People have seen the game themselves, and all the stats will tell you that they play long ball and are a physical side," explained Hoddle.
"That's an honest observation, not a criticism, but maybe Tony's taken it that way and is a bit touchy on that one.
"I respect what he has done with his team, there are no rights and wrongs in football, but the bottom line is that we have all seen the game.
"If people can tell me that they played five, six, seven passes and kept the ball on the floor than I'm wrong.
"It's the story of my life to say something and it be taken the wrong way."
The game finished in controversy not only with Pulis's comments but also the Stoke players surrounding referee Chris Foy to argue about the award of the injury time free-kick from which Wolves notched their equaliser.
