Report: Wolves made surprise move over £600,000 top flight hot prospect after negotiations
Wolverhampton Wanderers ended up pulling out of advanced negotiations over a transfer move for Djurgarden defender Felix Beijmo at the end of the January window, according to a report.
Swedish publication Expressen claim on their website that the Championship table toppers had been holding intensive talks over a move for the 20-year-old right back, who moved to the club for £600,000 (5million Kronor), in the final days of the winter transfer market, with German sides also reportedly interested in his signing.
However it is said that Wolves surprisingly pulled out of discussions with the Swedish top flight club late on, in order to pursue other transfer targets, and Beijmo ended up remaining with Djurgarden ahead of the start of their new league season which kicks off in March.
Football Insider verdict
It seems a major surprise that Wolves would have put in all that hard work into negotiations just to pull out late on in the window, with just Benik Afobe arriving to bolster the first team squad on deadline day, while they also welcomed a pair of reserve midfielders. Perhaps the club expected another deal to come off, hence their withdrawal from discussions for Beijmo, only for it to end in disappointment. Could a move come off in the summer? If Wolves really were interested, fans can expect their club to be keeping a close eye on his progression, and if he continues to impress, a move may well be on the cards. Still, they will be hoping to prepare for the Premier League come May, and it could be their targets change accordingly.
