Wolves manager Kenny Jackett has confirmed that Norwich City made a bid for Benik Afobe and, speaking after watching his side lose 2-3 to QPR – a game in which both Afobe and Charlie Austin scored, he had this to say to the assembled media on the subject:
‘They have (made a bid) and it has been turned down and not encouraged whatsoever,” Jackett said. “We`re not looking to sell our best players and within two weeks of the window closing we`re looking to build.
“We don`t encourage future bids. We`re not looking to sell our best players.
“At the moment we`re not interested, we don`t want to negotiate, it was turned down flat.
“Benik has been very good and was a threat. Any conversation we had before the game was about the football.”
Every player has a price, obviously and I wonder what figure would make Wolves talk and coupled with that, could City afford to (or want) to pay that much?
