'Gutted about this': Some Wolves fans devastated by club announcement which 'we'll regret'
Wolves fans have taken to Twitter to react after the club announced that Owen Otasowie had joined Club Brugge on a permanent basis.
What’s the story?
Well, it sounds as if some sections of the Molineux faithful aren’t too happy about this news.
Otasowie was one of the brightest prospects at Wolves, but sadly, things just haven’t worked out for him in the Midlands.
As the Express and Star claim, the 20-year-old rejected a contract offer from the club, which left Bruno Lage in a difficult situation.
The 1-cap USA international’s existing terms would’ve expired in 2022.
As a result, the decision was taken to offload the attacker, despite his vast potential.
Wolves’ Owen Otasowie announcement isn’t all bad news
Wolves Technical Director Scott Sellars confirmed in the club’s announcement that Otasowie was sold a in a multi-million pound deal.
For a player with only six Premier League appearances to his name, and also with just a year on his contract, that’s a great deal.
It’ll hardly allow him to bring Cristiano Ronaldo to Molineux, although those funds – and the extra space on the wage bill – could help Lage in the market.
If he does plan to make any more additions, he doesn’t have long with just over ten days until the transfer window ends.
For now, let’s see what the Wolves fans on Twitter have been saying about the club’s announcement…
If he keeps his head screwed on, we’ll regret this. https://t.co/hQ2C4yVjGi— Ash Dolan (@AshDolan16) August 20, 2021
This has to be looked at as an opportunity missed. On paper, he has the potential to be everything Wolves have been crying out for in midfield. Sadly, his off the pitch behaviour seems to have cut short his #wwfc career. Now, time for some incomings… https://t.co/hxmRgR3Cuv— David Handley (@DavidHandley) August 20, 2021
Bit gutted about this, he will be very very good ⚽️ https://t.co/gZWFUpJZqQ— RhysHannon (@RhysHannon) August 20, 2021
Consistently late for training (allegedly), didn't want to sign the contract offered to him (wanted more money apparently)… Good luck to him, but we don't need a bad egg at the club disrupting stuff. https://t.co/YaSRMUmluN— Keith Roden ◣ ◢ (@xKeithRodenx) August 20, 2021

Shame. Looked to be a player.— T.O (@TommyOliverWV) August 20, 2021
