Wolverhampton Wanderers FC has been put up for sale after owner and chairman Steve Morgan decided to put his 100% shareholding in the club up for sale.

Wolves have released the following statement:

Wolverhampton Wanderers FC announces today that after eight eventful and enjoyable years at the Club, and after much thought, owner and Chairman Steve Morgan has decided to put his 100% shareholding in the Club up for sale.

Steve will step down from the Board with immediate effect and day-to-day activities will continue to be managed by the Chief Executive with the current Board overseeing operations.

While the process of finding a new owner is being undertaken it is very much business as usual for the Head Coach, players, staff and all other stakeholders involved with Wolves.

Steve would like to relay to all concerned that his ongoing commitment and financial support to Wolves will continue until a new owner can be found.

He would like to thank everyone connected with the Club for their support and backing over his tenure to date and, as always, wishes Wolves every success for the future.

Wolves reject third bid for Benik Afobe

Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed that a third bid from Norwich City for Benik Afobe has been immediately rejected.

The club said its position on selling the player is unchanged since they issued a statement last week.

See below for their previous statement.

Benik Afobe was bought from Arsenal in January 2015, and other players arrived in the summer, to strengthen the team for the strongest possible challenge on promotion this season. Therefore, neither Benik nor any of Wolves’ first team forward players, will be sold this season. Benik has developed into a player of key importance to Wolves and the Club’s plans for this campaign. Wolves have previously resisted the opportunity to sell other key first team players in this and other recent transfer windows. As far as the Club is concerned there is no need for any further comments or speculation about this issue.
