    Not in the cup vs Liverpool and not even on the bench tonight, think he is gone or pretty much gone. Still, love the guy, his first goal last year started the season and on to where we are now, all the best

    It sounds like the poor man has been a victim of Toxic Femininity!

    Doesnt he live with his parents now? If so I really hope that rumour is untrue because that would be bloody awkward.

    Unlike Peter Crouch (allegedly), he found it easier to score off the pitch than on it (allegedly).

    Deal has collapsed with PAOK apparently from what I am seeing on Twitter. Stating we changed terms of the deal.

    They wouldn't accept the "200 concubines" part of the deal?

    Guessing we’re struggling to sign a striker.

    Has a Wolves striker fallen from grace so quickly? Went from goal-scoring machine and possible POTS in the first half of his first season to being a complete joke, a figure of fun, that no one will mind seeing leave. Crazy really.

    Are we really struggling to find a better alternative than Bonatini again this window? I know the window is hard but our scouts can surely find someone in World football? Mendes must have someone he could bring our way?

    Looks like we might not be willing to spend in this window mate. Our only targets that Spiers seems to have spoken about are low cost loans of players from the championship. Will laugh my ass of if we blow big money on someone, but I get the feeling we are trying to do it on the cheap this window.

    A real shame if this is the case. A couple of quality signings this window could see us cement a top half finish in my opinion. Lack of activity will leave us with a thin squad which could do with some help.

    Yea, honestly I think we are 2-3 players from really challenging for that 7th spot. But unless the club blindsides us with some top draw signings next week, it doesnt look like we are really looking to spend.

    I think we are all unaware of how inflated prices for players are in this window. Main example, Callum Wilson for £75m ffs.

    True but with Mendes on board I was hoping we would add a couple. Concerns me how light we are on numbers.

    Time for Mr Thelwell to earn his money. We can't keep relying on uncle Jorge

    Apparently, we wanted our money back plus a 40% (!) sell-on clause. Ridiculous. Just get rid of him.

    40% of free is the same as 20% of free.

    if we get money back, then that should be it. No loss for us, and then can replace him
    A sell on fee is greedy

    It's all much needed income.

    Drop asked for % to 20/25 and get the deal done!

    I'd be amazed if we got our money back. Clearly not in Nuno's plans, I know we love to drive a hard bargain but is it worth it in this case ?

    Oh I see, would be daft to let him go on a free.

    Just because he isn't good enough for where we are and want to be doesn't mean you just discard players

    Yep and we will be relying on u23 players as cover. Squad far too weak to let even Bonatini go without a replacement coming in.

    Nuno dropped a clanger changing his mind but these things happen. Its no reason to lose £4 mill.Loan him and then sell in the summer.

    I'm not suggesting we let him go on a free.

    Bonatini seems to be on a downward trajectory - you could say its a blip but its a blip over a year long.

    Haggling over a PAOK sell on clause seems daft when i can see him having even less resale value after his stint with PAOK - he may even end his career there.

    Its not like we are letting some 18 year old go with loads of potential - a sell on fee then i could understand.

    An article on him in the official site today.

    He’s going nowhere.

    An old article being published on the website doesn't mean he wont go anywhere, it's just a column filler.

    I'm surprised that a womens team dont bid for him and keep him as a "mascot."

    Leo hasn’t started a league game since last season and will obviously be on his way sooner or later.
    Not sure why people are so desperate to see him go immediately. The club are doing the right thing trying to get as good a deal as they can.
    Also don’t see why some are panicking that we may not sign anyone this winter. Said weeks ago I wouldn’t be surprised if we signed no one. We’re going to finish comfortably in mid table and I’d rather we got our proper business right in the summer than panic buy now for no reason. Very little business will be done by any premier league teams this window.

    A few injuries and I wouldnt be so confident of a comfortable mid table finish to be honest brightside. We need a couple of additions to see us to the summer. Not expecting mega millions to be spent but I think it would be a bit foolish to leave the squad so thin on numbers when a couple of injuries would see untested kids on the brink of playing. A couple of loans in one striker and defender and make Jimenez a permanent deal.
