Wolves transfer news: Wolves could offload Nelson Semedo in January

Wolves could reportedly offload Nelson Semedo in January, if the terms are right.

That is according to reporter Johnny Phillips, who was writing his latest column for the Express & Star.

Semedo has been in poor form this season, which has been a concern because Jonny Castro Otto has also really struggled.

Semedo came into the new season without a pre-season.

He spent the summer recovering from a bad hamstring injury he picked up against Brighton at the back end of last season.

He returned in Wolves’ second Premier League game this season against Fulham.

Semedo has been unable to nail down that spot at right-back, with Bruno Lage and Steve Davis having used him in rotation with Jonny.

According to Phillips, who supports Wolves and is well-connected at the club, the 29-year-old is ‘one possible departure if the terms are right’.

Semedo’s contract at Molineux expires next summer. But the club have an option to extend it to the summer of 2025.

That might be something they do in order to protect his value.

It is unclear how money much the club would hope to bring in for Semedo.

He arrived for around £29 million initially. There were claims that the deal could eventually cost £37 million, but Tim Spiers reported previously that some of the clauses involved are unlikely to ever be met.

Arguably, it’s unlikely the club would be able to recoup that initial £29 million fee.

It is interesting to read that Wolves would consider offloading Semedo if the terms were right.

The star has not been in good form at all this season, but Jonny has been worse.

If one of them has to go it should probably be the Spaniard. But Wolves are probably thinking Semedo would fetch a higher price. Perhaps the club need to bring in as much cash as possible to help do other deals.

It will be interesting to see what happens.

It would be a shame to see Semedo go, because last season, before his first hamstring injury, he had been one of Wolves’ best players.
