'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Last Tango in Alicante?

Wolves now look almost certain to sign Tomasz Frankowski.

An official statement from Elche CF states they have accepted the clubs offer, and negotiations are taking place over the players personal terms.

Frankowski confirmed as much in the Polish media saying that the matter was now with his manager, and only a major disagreement on the fine details of his contract would stop the deal going ahead.

Vital Wolves has followed this saga almost from its start and has never had any doubt that the deal would go ahead.

For Wolves it represnts a phenomenal piece of business, but what of the cost to a club who will see a star player torn from their grasp?

Frankowski has served Elche for less than six months. His signing was supposed to usher in a new age of prosperity, and a promotional push to La Liga. The same circumstance that brings him to Wolverhampton.

His agreed sale has seen major changes wihthin the Alicante club that have left their loyal fans wondering what will happen to their season.

President Ramon Sanchez has resigned, officially for personal health reasons. But the refusal of The Elche Board to agree on the capture of defender Pablo Amo whilst agreeing to the sale of Tomasz Frankowski are already being seen as the deciding factor in his leaving.

Following Sundays dissapointing 0-2 loss to Valladolid coach Uribe's position is now also under fire. Which has left Elche fans cursing the day Wolverhampton Wanderers came to town.

If Wolves were ever to twin themselves with another club, then Elche would surely be it.

Underachievment and large investment is a common thread between their two recent histories.

As are early campaigns, that started out with so much promise early doors, but have left their fan base asking questions.

So when the Molineux faithful get their man, and hail Frankowski in front of the media, bear a thought for those in Alicante who are left to pick up the pieces.

In the harsh light of football economics, it's the Illicitano's left counting the cost.
