Wolves launch complaint at Bolton

Wolves launch complaint at Bolton

Wolves have made an official complaint to the Premier League and FA regarding the departure of Academy player Mark Connolly to Bolton.

The two sides agreed a £1million fee on transfer deadline day to avoid a tribunial, but Wolves have now launched an official complaint against Bolton in regards to a breach of Premier League and FA rules.

'We have lodged an official letter of complaint, supported by considerable amounts of documentary evidence, with both the Premier League and the FA.' Wolves Chief Executive Jez Moxey told the Wolves Official Website.

His statement went on to add: 'This complaint relates to Bolton Wanderers and their Assistant Manager Chris Evans, a former Wolves employee. We allege that there has been a breach of the Premier League and FA rules in place to protect a club's Academy programme, maintain player contract stability and prevent illegal approaches of players.'

The statement concluded by adding: 'It is not an issue about money or the level of compensation we received for a player we did not want to leave; it is about the protection of the Club's Academy programme and its development of young players, something which is of paramount importance to us at Wolves. We cannot sit on our hands and allow the events surrounding Mark Connolly's departure to pass unchallenged or unnoticed.'

Vital Wolves Comment: The Connolly transfer didn't appear to make too much sense at the time, however this statement fills in the blanks.
