A report, albeit a short one, in that bastion of financial transparency The Daily Mirror suggests that Seyi George Olofinjana may be on the verge of quitting Wolves.
The substance of what is a wholly uncorroborated article is based on Olofinjana currently being in the last year of his contract, and having not yet signed a new one.
IF the story turns out to be true, it would be in stark contrast to the public statements made earlier this year by Olofinjana, when he clearly stated his desire to sign a new contract extension.
The piece states that Reading and 'Boro are amongst the teams tracking the situation, with an eye to a January deal.
Not withstanding the player will be at the African Nations Cup.
Or Mick McCarthy's public statement that he would rather the player walked for free at the end of his contract than cash in a paltry ammount in the next transfer window.
Tabloid gossip or truth? Time will tell, but if cornered, and at a push, if I had to choose between believing Mick McCarthy and Olofinjana, or The Pensioners Favourite, I know who I'd choose
