Exclusive claims Wolves could now hijack bargain deal lined up by Rafa Benitez

According to an exclusive in the Bristol Post, Rafa Benitez IS targeting a move for Bristol City left-back Joe Bryan – however we could be set to face late competition from Wolves for his signature.

The story states that Manchester City’s Oleksandr Zinchecko is currently Wolves’ top target, but it looks like the newly promoted side will turn their attentions to Bryan if Guardiola is unwilling to sell the Ukrainian.

It’s positive to hear that Benitez is keen to sign Bryan – one of the top performers in the Championship last season – however our hopes of signing him could be dealt a major blow if the big spending Wolves get involved.

Here’s a snippet from the Bristol Post’s latest exclusive on the 24-year old’s future, confirming Rafa’s interest but admitting that Wolves could end up making a late move:

“BristolLive understands from our sources that the news is true, and the Magpies are indeed tracking the 24-year-old Bristolian, with Rafa Benitez a fan.

“However, we can add that Wolverhampton Wanderers are also interested in the City academy graduate.

“Nuno Espirito Santo – a good friend of Lee Johnson after the pair did their coaching badges together in Scotland – also hopes to bring in a left-sided player before the end of the transfer window, although our sources have told us that the team from Molineux have prioritised bringing in Manchester City midfielder Oleksandr Zinchecko this window.

“If the Ukrainian is not released by Pep Guardiola then we’re told that Wolves will become serious players in the chase for the Bryan’s signature.According to our information, Bryan will not sign a new deal at Ashton gate this summer.

“But as of late Monday there had still not been any bids for him.”

So, it’s good to hear our interest is genuine and promising that he looks all set to refuse a new contract and seek a move elsewhere, but Wolves’ potential interest could be the big deciding factor here.

It’s sad to say, but I doubt we’ll be able to compete with the transfer fee and/or wages they’d be willing to offer given the sort of money they’ve been throwing about so far this summer.

With no bid made just yet, now’s the time we weighed in with an offer in a bid to get this one done before it’s too late..

  1. Sorry to say this,but I dont think we will see any new faces at SJP in the next two weeks.Ashley does not give a jot about the club, the manager or the fans.The only thing he is concerned about is how much money he can take out of NUFC .So its up to the paying fans, stop his cash cow by not attending which I know is hard to do,but it’s the only way,he will not want an empty stadium shown all over the world nor the demonstrations, forget about mentioning Sxxxxs Dxxxxt as that is publicity for his tat shops and any publicity is still publicity , empty the ground, demonstrate peacefully, get onto Facebook etc sit outside his shops,no ago, then maybe he will get the message that we are no lo ger goi g to put our hard earned money in his pocket and go HWTL in Rafa we trust.@If rafagoeswego
