Wolves Looking To Make Profit On Player They Signed On Friday

Just days after signing for Wolves, Benik Afobe is already being linked with a move away from the club.

The 25-year-old, who started his career at Arsenal, joined Wolves on a permanent deal on Friday. The club paid £10 million for the striker who had been on loan at the club since January. Afobe scored six goals in 16 appearances during his three and a bit months at Molineux as Wolves won promotion to the Premier League.

In Afobe's loan deal was a clause allowing Wolves to sign him permanently. Knowing that there was other interest in the player, Wolves used that clause last week to purchase the player.

Stoke have since been linked with the striker, who had played the 2015/16 season for Wolves, after joining from Arsenal. According to The Times, Wolves look likely to make a £2 million profit on a player who may only be on their books for a week.

Stoke and Gary Rowett are reportedly looking for players with Championship experience as they aim to immediately rebound back up to English football's top tier.

The episode brings to mind the case of Didi Hamann and Bolton. In 2006, Hamann agreed to join the club on a free transfer from Liverpool. However, he would spend the bare minimum of time at Bolton - a day - after having a change of heart and instead deciding he would prefer to play for Man City.
