Wolves have failed in their attempt to sign Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City, according to a report.
The club had agreed a £16million fee with City but the wing-back was reluctant to make the move, Press Association Sport claims.
Ambitious Wolves had been hoping to convince him to move to Molineux but Zinchenko is now likely to remain at the Etihad Stadium for now.
The clubs had struck a deal a number of weeks ago with Zinchenko likely to be down the pecking order at City.
He made 14 appearances for Pep Guardiola’s side last season when Fabian Delph and Benjamin Mendy were out injured.
But the pair are fit ahead of the start of the season and Ukraine international Zinchenko may find his chances limited.
Wolves are planning for life back in the Premier League and broke their transfer record to sign £18m Adama Traore from Middlesbrough this week.
They are also interested in Belgium international Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht and were keen on Swansea’s Sam Clucas, but he has been spotted at Stoke’s training ground.
