Freddy Eastwood's protracted exit from Molineux lurched into another dead end today when Coventry announced that despite the two clubs agreeing terms, the player could not, citing money Eastwood would lose out that he is 'legally entitled to' as the cause.
Odd wording, with a simple meaning.
It's no ones but Fred's fault.
With Wolves saying, albeit according to the E&S, that the deal on the table is worth the same basic, plus a better bonus scheme, Freddy seems to be backed into a corner.
Negotiation would seem the only option open, with both vendor and buyer aiming to spin the PR machine in their favour.
Whatever happens, the sooner a line is drawn under this immotive, clipped and short Wolves career the better for all involved.
