Wolves transfer news: Wolves reach impasse in Jason Denayer negotiations

Wolves have reportedly reached an impasse in their negotiations with Jason Denayer.

The club were linked with a move for the Belgium international at the end of the summer transfer window.

Wolves opted to try and sign Craig Dawson from West Ham United in the final days.

But West Ham could not secure a replacement for the 32-year-old, forcing Wolves to settle with the options they have. That’s despite selling Willy Boly to Nottingham Forest.

But Wolves remain linked with a move for Denayer, who is currently a free agent and can join a new club at any time.

Bruno Lage actually spoke about the 27-year-old at his press conference ahead of the same with Southampton.

He said (via Birmingham Mail): “I know him very well. You are talking about a centre-back that I know very well, I played against him in the Champions League.

“We are talking about a player who has played in the Champions League and for his national team. Let’s see what can happen.

“I will continue to say my opinion that I said two days ago, we are very happy with Collins and Max, I am still happy with Toti and Yerson, but I think there’s a gap between the two that are playing and the two that are not playing.”

Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri has an update on the situation today.

He claims that Wolves are not keen to offer any more money than they already have to the player.

And apparently Denayer is not willing to earn less.

So for the moment, there is an impasse.

Wolves run the risk of losing out on Jason Denayer

This is a frustrating update, because Wolves could really do with signing Denayer.

The club missed out on Dawson, so he is the next best option given the window has now closed.

Toti and Mosquera are both bright young talents but lacking experience at Premier League level.

Really, another body is needed and preferably it needs to be someone who is at least mid to late twenties.

Denayer could be quite coveted as an experienced free agent. If Wolves do really want to bring him in, then they will need to be quick before other clubs come to the table.
