The English Football League (EFL) have insisted that the Wolves hierarchy passed the Owner and Directors (O&D) test after Leeds chief Andrea Radrizzani launched an attack on the midlands club, according to a journalist.

The Yorkshire Evening Post’s Phil Hay has claimed on his personal Twitter account that he is waiting on official response from the EFL regarding the Italian’s claims but that other clubs who have also voiced concern were told there were no issues as far as the officiating body were concerned.

The Whites sank to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of the league leaders at Elland Road on Wednesday night, cementing Wolves’ place at the top of the table and leaving Paul Heckingbottom and his men languishing down in 13th, leading to Radrizzani’s outburst on social media, where he questioned how legal the table toppers’ transfer activity was.

Yes, Wolves have been able to secure some top talents with their connections but it is the nature of the game, and you can be sure that Radrizzani would be defending himself vehemently were the tables turned.
