Wolves have sent midfielder Prince Oniangue on loan to Bastia – and the club’s supporters were not pleased with the decision on Twitter.
The Midlands club confirmed on their official website that the 28-year-old has joined French side Bastia on loan until the end of the season.
The central midfielder has played a bit-part role this season and has made 11 appearances, scoring two goals in return.
He has not featured in the first-team since the 23 October against Cambridge in the EFL Cup and has now moved away to pursue regular game time.
Wolves fans have expressed their anger that the club have allowed Oniangue to leave in the January window as he is a player they rate.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
would rather this be Saville if I'm being honest, rated prince tbh, at least it's a loan though.

don't get that. Would have him ahead of Savile and Evans any day! Saville should have gone out on loan!

Might not have worked for Oniangué but still scored as many as the Ice man & two more than Nouha Dicko. #wwfc

Wolves completed the signing of Congo international Oniangue in the summer from Reims on a four-year deal.
He made a positive start to his life in the Championship, but has been unable to force his way back into contention after suffering a hamstring injury in October.
He will now hope to recapture his best form back in France and will return to England at the end of the season.
Wolves have preferred to use the likes of Dave Edwards, George Saville, Jack Price and Ivan Cavalerio instead.
In other Wolves transfer news, the club have returned with a second bid for a versatile attacker.
