Yesterday, the72 reported that Benik Afobe had joined Sky Bet Championship side Stoke City on an initial six month loan deal, with the potential to sign him permanently in January.
It is one of the strangest transfers in recent years, as Benik Afobe originally joined Wolves on a permanent basis just a week ago, completing his move from Premier League side Bournemouth for a fee believed to be in the region of £10 million.
However, as soon as he joined Wolves, Stoke showed an interest, and it seems that Wolves were more than willing to let him go.
It sounds bizarre, but what did Wolverhampton Wanderers fans make of the transfer?
We take a look at how some of them reacted on twitter here:
This Wolves supporter senses something is a bit strange with Afobe, and feels that the striker knew that he would be moving elsewhere even when he joined the Black Country club.
Some Wolves fans are disappointed to see Afobe leave the club, and even though this particular supporter can understand why the club have done it, he is still disappointed.
This fan feels that the only reason Nuno Santo decided to sign Benik Afobe on a permanent basis is because he knew he could make a quick profit on him, and that has certainly been proven.
#afobe was exactly what we needed to give #wwfc a lift and score some important goals but it was a shock that Nuno signed him when he clearly didn’t rate him, the quick sale is simply making the most of an opp to make money for club and player at the expense of #afcb. #win

This supporter was a fan of Abobe’s work, but did not think he had what it takes to succeed in the Premier League.
Was really fond of Afobe. Very best wishes to him at Stoke. But he's not at the level demanded by a head coach preparing to give the Premier League a right good go. Bring it on #wwfc https://t.co/Y06kfROe0N

Wolves confirmed the signing of Mexican striker Raul Jimenez yesterday, and this fan feels that with him and all the other potential signings, Afobe would not have got his chance at Molineux.
