Wolves will not stand in Doumbia's way

Tongo Doumbia could be included in the Mali squad for the African Cup of Nations.

If selected the 23-year-old 2.5 million summer signing from Rennes would certainly miss four games which fall into the African Cup of Nations tournament dates (January 19 to February 10). But once you add in training camps etc, he could miss around six games.

"It is still up in the air at the moment. We don`t really want him to go but we will see what happens,`` Wolves gaffer Solbakken said to the Birmingham Mail.

He added: ''If he wants to go and he is picked then it is no problem, we must be without him. It is as easy as that, there are international rules for this. In a way I can influence a little bit but I`m not going to twist his arm and this is his country."

Wolves could end up being well represented in the tournament, Razak Boukari could be named in the Togo team, whilst Bakary Sako could be set to join Doumbia in the Mali squad as they are considering calling him up ahead of the tournament.

Have to be honest....on recent games I think David Davies will easily fill Tongos boots.
Rustmonkey
I agree, Rustmonkey. As I noted in my report of yesterday's game, I thought that Davis strengthened our defence when he replaced Doumbia. If he continues to play like this, we will not need another ball-winner in midfield.

Doumbia hasn't lived upto expectations thats for sure ! , Peszko Margeiter Boukari , takes me back to the days of Daley and Thomas where we never saw them either !!!! I have never known a club with constant injuries season on season like us !
