Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Kenny Jackett insists that there have been no offers from other clubs for striker Benik Afobe. It was reported recently that Derby County were planning on breaking their record transfer fee to lure Afobe to iPro Stadium.

The 22-year-old certainly has plenty of admirers in the English game and although Jackett says that there haven’t been any bids this January, he hints that there could be some interest on the horizon,

“We’ve had no calls about Benik, we haven’t had a bid.

If it is coming, nothing’s happened yet.”

Ex-Millwall manager Jackett has inspired his team to a recent upturn in form with the Molineux club. After a barren run of form, they are now back in the top half of the Championship after a run of three straight victories, all to nil. He is more interested in strengthening his squad,

“We want to try to improve (the team) and move on if we can.”

Wolves’ number ten Afobe has been the subject of interest from other clubs, mostly Premier League sides, throughout his time in Wolverhampton. After spending most of career out on loan with Football League clubs, Wolves is only his second permanent home after beginning his career with Arsenal. It is unlikely he’ll remain a Wolves player in the long-term, but he’ll continue to give his all for the Amber shirt whilst he is in their possession.
