Wolverhampton Wanderers are now looking at Leicester City midfielder Hamza Choudhury as a potential alternative to Renato Sanches.

That is according to talkSPORT’s Alex Crook, who was the first to break the story of Wolves being interested in Sanches last night.

At the time of writing, it is looking like Wolves are going to struggle to land the Lille star.

Wolves have apparently now ended talks with the French side having failed to reach an agreement over his potential loan (Sky Sports).

Apparently, Choudhury is now of interest.

The Englishman is currently quite far down in the pecking order at the King Power Stadium.

Midfield is particularly strong for the Foxes, with Wilfred Ndidi, Boubakary Soumare and Nampalys Mendy all vying to minutes.

Choudhury has been heavily linked with Newcastle United, who are still working away today to try and get him in.


It was reported earlier that the deal was off, but there have since been claims it could still come to fruition.

But Wolves may well end up scuppering it for them.

Choudhury links likely won’t go down well

Choudhury is a decent player, but Wolves fans are unlikely to be jumping for joy over this one.

The Sanches deal seemingly not happening is hugely disappointing.

Many people wanted to see him come in to play alongside Ruben Neves.

But it doesn’t look like that will be happening.

It remains to be seen if a move for Choudhury will instead come to fruition.
