Conflicting reports as Wolves linked with Okay Yokuslu

Wolverhampton Wanderers continue to be linked with a move for Okay Yoksulu.

The midfielder spent the second half of last season on loan at West Bromwich Albion, and is now back with Celta Vigo.

Interestingly, he played no part against Wolves recently when the sides met at Molineux.

After being linked to Wolves by Sky Sports earlier this month, it has also been claimed by Radio Marca Vigo, (via El Desmarque) that Yokuslu is close to leaving the Spanish outfit to head to Molineux

It’s their claim that the club are apparently negotiating for the Turkey international.

Wolves fans, having been starved of new signings for almost a month now, had been wondering if there is any truth in the latest Yokuslu speculation.

But according to the Express & Star’s Liam Keen, the rumours about Yokuslu heading to Molineux are ‘wide of the mark’.

Yokuslu would have been a nice addition

It seems, then, that Yokuslu may not be bound for the Black Country despite a lot of noise on social media. Well, at least not for Molineux.

That’s a shame as he actually did look good for West Brom before the Baggies slipped out of the Premier League and back into the Championship.

With Owen Otasowie looking like he’ll leave for Club Brugge, he could have made for a decent little replacement.
