Wolves have issued a statement in response to speculation that Norwich have made a ‘substantial’ bid for Benik Afobe:
‘In response to some media speculation this morning, Benik Afobe was bought from Arsenal in January 2015, and other players arrived in the summer, to strengthen the team for the strongest possible challenge on promotion this season.
Therefore, neither Benik nor any of Wolves` first team forward players, will be sold this season.
Benik has developed into a player of key importance to Wolves and the Club`s plans for this campaign.
Wolves have previously resisted the opportunity to sell other key first team players in this and other recent transfer windows.
As far as the Club is concerned there is no need for any further comments or speculation about this issue.’
Sounds like ‘substantial’ may not be enough…
